The Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall has commissioned a new work by filmmaker and artist Miranda July. July’s latest work We Think Alone is not an installation, object, or poem but simply a set of 20 weekly emails all participants receive between July 1 and November 11, 2013. July collaborates with a list of notable figures for this work - mining private previously sent messages from their email accounts. Each week, July will send a set of previously sent messages under a weekly theme of her choice. Collaborators for this project include Kirsten Dunst, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as well as Lena Dunham.
On Monday, artist Xaviera Simmons started a series of performative actions at MoMA. As part of her project, Archive as Impetus, Xaviera and others present images and perform texts from MoMA’s history with politics. From feminism to Occupy Museums, Xaviera draws a line of MoMA’s political narrative from its inception in 1929 to today.
You can see Xaviera in the Gund Lobby from 11-4pm on Mondays, in the Sculpture Garden on Thursdays at 3 and 4pm, and finally on Friday in and around the museum through June! Free with museum admission.
