Talk & Tour: The Social Psychology of Happiness
Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show is one of the largest exhibitions in MOV's 120-year history. It transcends the boundary between art and design. It takes over museum galleries and in-between spaces – stairwells, hallways, and restrooms – in order to ask: what makes us happy?
Join Aaron Weidman from the Social Cognition & Emotion Lab at the University of British Columbia to unlock the facts and science behind some of The Happy Show’s assertions about well-being. A walk through this interactive exhibition tour will include ample opportunity for Q&A with Aaron and a member of the museum’s curatorial team.
*Please note that the exhibition includes adult themes and content.
Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show is organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, curated by Claudia Gould. Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Additional support provided by The Chodorow Exhibition Initiative Fund; The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; The Dietrich Foundation, Inc.; the Overseers Board for the Institute of Contemporary Art; friends and members of ICA; and the University of Pennsylvania.
