BMW Tate Live: Performance Room – Harrell Fletcher

A second chance to watch Harrell Fletcher’s performance of Where I’m Calling From captured live Thursday, 28 June, 2012 at Tate Modern

Artist Harrell Fletcher invited a busker to take his performances from the tube stations and streets of London into the gallery to play live, online to the BMW Tate Live: Performance Room’s global audience on 28 June.

Harrell Fletcher’s work often takes the form of socially engaged collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. With Where I’m Calling From, buskers shift from playing to a local London audience to performing on a global online stage. By moving a musician from tube station, to gallery space, and then back out to the world through the web, Harrell Fletcher aims to question value, and the influence of the internet.
