The Happy Show
Presenting the work of internationally acclaimed NYC-based graphic designer and typographer, Stefan Sagmeister.
Sagmeister is as celebrated for his commercial work for brands like LEVIs or his album covers for The Rolling Stones and Talking Heads as he is for his provocative public art installations. He not only tests the boundary between art and design, he often transgresses it through his imaginative implementation of typography.
The Happy Show offers visitors the experience of walking into the designer’s mind as he attempts to increase his happiness via mediation, cognitive therapy, and mood-altering pharmaceuticals. Centered around the designer’s ten-year exploration of happiness, this exhibition presents typographic investigations of a series of maxims, or rules to live by, originally culled from Sagmeister’s diary, manifested in a variety of imaginative and interactive forms.
