Former Juxtapoz featured artist and acclaimed writer/filmmaker/conceptual artist, Miranda July, has been commissioned by Magasin 3 of Stockholm for the exhibition On The Tip of My Tongue, where July has taken the emails of some celebrities and friends and will present museum visitors with a themed compendium of 10 emails. We Think Alone is a project that only exists in your inbox, and will happen every Monday from July 1 to November 11, 2013.

Here is a little summary:

Collaborators: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Lena Dunham, Kirsten Dunst, Sheila Heti, Etgar Keret, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Catherine Opie, Lee Smolin and Danh Vo

"We Think Alone has given me the excuse to read my friends' emails and the emails of some people I wish I was friends with…. None of these emails were originally intended to be read by me (much less you*) …Privacy, the art of it, is evolving."

On the Tip of My Tongue
Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall

On the Tip of My Tongue is a series of events and unique projects as well as an exhibition in the usual sense. It includes artworks that point away from the site of the exhibition itself, towards other virtual or parallel existences and experiences. Its intention is to actively expand the structures that surround the usual exhibition situation, and deliberately work with the artworks included, so as to unfix or destabilize the categories of time and space. It aims to trigger situations and experiences that linger as if "just out of reach," to generate encounters that keep growing—in thought and through conversation—long after each actual event has ended.
