Opening and Walkthrough: Spring 2012


ICA celebrated the official openings of First Among Equals and Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show with a members-only walkthrough of First Among Equals with participating artists, performative sculpture by Kathryn Andrews, and curators Alex Klein and Kate Kraczon, and of The Happy Show with designer Stefan Sagmeister and curator Claudia Gould. During the reception, eight performers, dressed in white, enacted a series of two-person conversations based on Stefan Sagmeister’s use of truisms. Scattered throughout the ICA, these performed interventions are written and enacted by students from Penn’s yearlong seminar “Writing Through Culture and Art.”
