Last night, November 17, was the release party for “It Chooses You” by Miranda July--as well as the grand opening of a pop-up shop based on the book. In the spirit of the book, the author and her team hunted through the NYC classifieds in search of once-meaningful objects for sale. Upon purchasing these artifacts--such as Japanese dolls, oil paints, an old paper cutter, and deer hooves--July interviewed the sellers. These items are being resold at the original asking price, plus tax, at July’s resale shop within gallery/studio Partners & Spade. Each item has received unique packaging which provides a glimpse into the object's previous life. Although it's too late to go to the grand opening, the show and book will be on display at Partners & Spade (40 Great Jones, NYC), until December 11th , making it an excellent stop on your holiday-shopping tour.
