Description

Product Description

Filmmaker. Author. Performer. Shopkeeper. Miranda July--the most impressive cross-disciplinary artist of her generation--is brought into focus in this career-spanning retrospective.

Regardless of the medium, July''s daring, urgent, and idiosyncratic voice finds unexpectedly accessible forms that reflect the poignancy and strangeness of the human plight. In film, fiction, performance, public art, commerce, and even a smartphone app, July deftly explores themes of inclusivity, desire, fear, and fantasy. This chronological survey spans the artist''s entire career to date, including her early plays and fanzines, participatory works, and personal projects which illuminate the multidimensionality and timeliness of her work.

Miranda July is brought to life in an introductory interview with Julia Bryan-Wilson and candid recollections by friends, collaborators, curators, assistants, and audience members: Carrie Brownstein, David Byrne, Spike Jonze, Sheila Heti, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and July herself. This revealing, insightful commentary provides an intimate perspective on the artist''s ever-evolving process. July may be impossible to categorize, but the enduring importance of her work and her status as an essential cultural icon is irrefutable.

Review

"Titled simply Miranda July, Prestel’s excellent new “mid-career retrospective” of the artist highlights July’s enduring interest in the very darkest aspects of human existence." — Hyperallergic

"If you''re familiar with the award-winning author and filmmaker, this chronological survey of her idiosyncratic career will offer fascinating new insights into her cross-disciplinary work. And if you''re not, well, get ready for a visually striking, celeb-filled (Carrie Brownstein! David Byrne! Spike Jonze!) introduction to one of the most interesting artists of our time." — Entertainment Weekly
"It’s a fascinating, chronological hop-scotch across formative pieces and works, delving into her archive to shed light on her constantly evolving process and heartfelt themes of intimacy and connectivity, whatever the medium. The section on Love Diamond is a personal fave, and the story of her square-toed nurses shoes." — Dazed

"...the trick of Miranda July is how successfully it translates the technique to the page, tracking the ping-bang-whiz of her kinetic thoughts." — Alta

Explore the whole range of Miranda July's works including:

Snarla, 1992-1993

Alongside the plays, July made a fanzine, Snarla, with her best friend at the time, Johanna Fateman. The five issues were composed of July and Fateman’s experimental feminist fiction about themselves and each other, sometimes disguised as characters that Fateman called Ida and July (a name Miranda took for her own and eventually legalized).

The Drifters, 2002

In 2001 July was invited to perform and make a sound installation for the upcoming Whitney Biennial curated by Lawrence R. Rinder, Chrissie Iles, Christiane Paul, and Debra Singer. July chose the museum’s main elevator as the site for a series of distinct short narrative whose characters she voiced. A woman and her husband talk while watching their house burn down, a rock star becomes vulnerable while revving up the audience, a teacher inspires children to life their fists to the universe…

Eleven Heavy Things, 2009

Eleven Heavy Things, curated for the 53rdInternational Arts Exhibition at the Venice Biennale, was installed in an enclosed garden within Giardino delle Vergini. The cast fiberglass, steel-lined pieces included pedestals to stand on, tablets with holes for body parts, and freestanding abstract headdresses. A series of tablets invited heads, arms, legs, and, in one case, a single finger to fill in the appropriate holes.

Interfaith Charity Shop, 2017

Commissioned by London-based Artangel, this interfaith charity shop opened to the public as a fully functional store from August 31 to October 22, 2017, on the third floor of Selfridges, an iconic luxury department store on Oxford Street. It was jointly staffed and stocked by Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim charity shops who were invited by July to join forces. Items for sale were typical of those traditionally sold in charity shops—secondhand clothes, books, games, kitchenware, toys, and bric-a-brac.
