INVITATION - Tumblr Artist
Sagmeister & Walsh | Stefan Sagmeister (b.1962, Austria/USA) - The Happy Show | on Tumblr
Stefan Sagmeister is a designer who blends typography and imagery in striking, fresh, ambitious, and unsettling ways. Having influenced the culture of design over the past decade, he is perhaps best known for his album covers for Talking Heads, Lou Reed, OK Go, and The Rolling Stones, to name only a few, as well as innovative campaigns, for companies like Levis, that have entered the public consciousness.
In addition to individual works, some of which have been custom-made for this exhibition, The Happy Show includes a personal narrative, as Sagmeister’s individual experience is portrayed beside social data detailing the role of age, gender, race, money, and other factors that determine happiness. This thematically focused exhibition presents work in film, print, infographics, sculpture, and interactive installations.
The Happy Show is actually on at La Gaîté lyrique
