Got any free time tonight? Yeah, of course you do! (Oh, you really don’t? Well, just play along with us. COME ON!) The Institute of Contemporary Art (36th and Sansom) will host two opening receptions for its two stellar– and free– new exhibitions, The Happy Show and First Among Equals, from 6-8 tonight.
The Happy Show is a showcase of the work of graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister as he explores the concept of happiness. We’re happily unhappy people, so we’ll probably skip it, but you should check it out! You’ve probably seen Sagmeister’s artwork on the albums of Lou Reed, the Rolling Stones and OK Go. So that’s neat. And if you fancy yourself très artsy, go on a look-see of First Among Equals, which talks about contemporary artists in the age of obsessive social connection.
