Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show
Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show
Mar 20, 2013-Jun 7, 2013

MOCA presents the first Los Angeles museum exhibition of the work of graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister, an artist who not only tests the boundary between art and design, but often transgesses it through his imaginative implementation of typography. <em>The Happy Show</em>, a thematic exhibition of film, print, infographics, sculpture, and interactive installations 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.
