I was happy at “The Happy Show,” Stefan Sagmeister’s sprawling exhibition at the ICA… Sagmeister himself does not seem to support or respond personally to any one idea or philosophy. Consequently, one does not feel the remotest obligation to agree with any particular statement. That’s refreshing. Another thing that made me happy is how I was surrounded by cheerful people, chattering, photographing and taking guided cell-phone tours. The show effectively banishes the buttoned-up intellectual restraint one associates with art galleries and gives everyone permission to be casual, convivial and, well — happy.
