Miranda July: It Chooses You Pop Up

by Intern Courtney

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.
