Miranda July is a filmmaker, performing artist and writer. She grew up in Berkeley, California where she began her career by writing plays and staging them at the local punk club. July’s videos, performances, and web-based projects have been presented at sites such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum and in the 2002 and 2004 Whitney Biennials. Based in Portland for many years, July premiered her performances Love Diamond (1998) and Swan Tool (2001) at PICA, and she bid farewell to Portland with a performance of How I Learned to Draw as part of the 2003 TBA Festival.

July created the participatory website, learningtoloveyoumore, with artist Harrell Fletcher and a companion book will be published by Prestel in Fall 2007. She wrote, directed and starred in her first feature-length film, Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005), which won a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and four prizes at the Cannes Film Festival, including the Camera d’Or. Her short fiction has been published in The Paris Review, Zoetrope All-Story, and The New Yorker. Her new collection of stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, was published by Scribner in Spring 2007.

We hope you will join PICA in welcoming Miranda back to Portland for this special event. For more information on Miranda July’s new book please visit:
