Miranda July’s new project “We Think Alone” was commissioned by Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall for a show called “On The Tip of My Tongue”. The project, which rolls out over 20 weeks, will send subscribers a themed compendium of ten emails each Monday morning. It will include messages sent from a range of notable people (who agreed to participate in advance). Those names include the NBA’s all-time leading scorer Kareem Abdul Jabar, fashion-designing siblings Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, and photographer Catherine Opie. The emails, as July states “were all carefully selected by their authors in response to my list of email genres — so self-portraiture is quietly at work here. Privacy, the art of it, is evolving. Radical self-exposure and classically manicured discretion can both be powerful, both be elegant. And email itself is changing, none of us use it exactly the same way we did ten years ago; in another ten years we might not use it at all”.
