LEARNING TO LOVE YOU MORE
Presented by THE THING Quarterly & SFMOMA
May 14 – August 21, 2016 / Floor 2, Koret Education Center, SFMOMA
Launched in 2002, before the rise of the blogosphere, Web 2.0 platforms, and social media, Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July’s Learning to Love You More invited people all over the world to respond to seventy creative assignments set by the artists. The work comprises over 8,000 submissions, including photographs, objects, texts, and videos, which were collected and published as a web project through 2009. Following the wishes of Fletcher and July, exhibitions of Learning to Love you More may be curated by other artists, and SFMOMA has invited TTQ editors and artists Will Rogan and Jonn Herschend to curate this exhibition. Herschend and Rogan have made a focused selection from the body of submissions that evokes, for them, the poignancy of Learning To Love You More, the elements of the work that flirt with humor, despair, and beauty, sometimes all at once.
As part of the exhibition, they have taken on assignment #4: Start a lecture series. And in this case, the series is called Lectures on Things by People. Join us for one or all.
