Miranda July is a filmmaker, artist, and writer. This commission from Artangel is her first major work in the UK.

Her movies, performances, and web-based projects have been presented at MoMA, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, and in two Whitney Biennials in New York. Her participatory artworks include the website Learning to Love You More (2000 – 2007; now in the collection of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), Eleven Heavy Things (a sculpture garden created for the 2009 Venice Biennale), Somebody (2014; a messaging app created with Miu Miu) and New Society (2015; a performance).

She wrote, directed and starred in the films The Future (2011) and Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005; winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival). Her debut novel, The First Bad Man, was a New York Times bestseller in 2015 and her collection of stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, from 2007, won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award; both books are published in twenty-five countries.

Her writing has also appeared in The Paris Review, Harper’s, and The New Yorker. It Chooses You was her first book of non-fiction. Earlier this year, The Getty Research Institute acquired the archive of July’s Joanie 4 Jackie project, an underground video distribution network for women she founded in 1995. She is the recipient of a 2016 USA Artist Fellowship Award, and is a member of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. July lives in Los Angeles.

Jeremy Deller is a celebrated British artist who makes politically and socially-charged performance works. He was born in London and studied History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London. Deller received the Turner Prize in 2004, and his show at Tate Britain included documentation of The Battle of Orgreave. In late 2006, Deller instigated The Bat House Project, an architectural competition open to the public for a bat house on the outskirts of London and in 2007, Deller was appointed a Trustee of Tate.
