About the Event //
RMCAD is honored to close out the year’s Humor series by hosting acclaimed artist, writer, and filmmaker Miranda July in an on-stage conversation with local artist and art writer Lanny DeVuono. The discussion will focus on July’s use of humor which employs a complexity of emotion that does more than elicit a chuckle – it simultaneously exposes something deep and raw about our humanity by balancing in a liminal space between fragility and the elation granted by laughing at the absolute ridiculousness of our vulnerability.

About Miranda July //
July’s work has exhibited widely, including at the Museum of Modern Art, the Venice Biennale, and in two Whitney Biennials. July wrote, directed, and starred in two feature-length, award winning films: The Future, and Me and You and Everyone We Know. Her fiction has been published in The Paris Review, The New Yorker, and many other publications, and collected in the book No One Belongs Here More Than You. Her New York Times Bestselling novel The First Bad Man was published last year. July has created a number of interactive works including web and email-based projects as well as a geosocial networking app.

About Lanny DeVuono //
DeVuono is a Denver based artist, art writer, and Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Colorado Denver. DeVuono received numerous awards for her work, including a Fulbright Fellowship and a GAP (Grants for Artist Projects) Grant. She writes on contemporary art with past publications including Art News and New Art Examiner.

This yearlong lecture series focuses on the application of comedy, parody, irony, play, and wit as instruments of communication and experimentation in art, design, and culture. Humor exists in a boundary-blurring space where joy and anguish meet, allowing creators to reveal the severity and ridiculousness of contemporary life.
