Talk & Tour: The Happy Story

Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show

Talk & Tour: The Happy Story

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?

Explore The Happy Show with the Museum of Vancouver’s Director of Curatorial & Engagement, Gregory Dreicer, for a behind-the-scenes look at the exhibition’s journey to Vancouver. This informal tour and Q&A is an opportunity to learn more about the inspiration for bringing The Happy Show to Vancouver, the impact it has had on visitors, and the museum’s approach to social engagement.

Date: Thursday, August 6, 2015
Time: 7:00pm
