Grant Shaffer at La Mama Galleria

Grant Shaffer will open a solo exhibition, Gay Arms, on February 26 at La MaMa Galleria. For Gay Arms, he will present a new body of photographic work. Shaffer writes, “When I’m taking pictures, I think of myself as an alien who’s here for a while, trying to understand the experience of my sliver of life on this planet.  It’s hard to say what my photos and this show are about.  It’s just intuitive.  It’s very personal and at the same time very public. It’s me trying to take in the world and asking people to notice or consider something.”

The book is based on the grieving process of Tom and his wife after the death of their young daughter. Keith and Tom speak on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 7pm, Barnes & Noble, 2289 Broadway, New York City.

Sagmeister & Walsh, "The Happy Film"

Sagmeister & Walsh, “The Happy Film”

Ilene Strizver interviewed design titan Stefan Sagmeister for her TypeTalk series with CreativePro.com. Sagmeister speaks about his thinking process, his education, your education, and his dream job. One takeaway: “The current generation of design school faculty all learned about design in the 80s and 90s when ideas and concepts were king, and formal considerations were dismissed – including by me – as decoration. I now think that was wrong. Beauty is very much part of what it means to be human. Good-looking things communicate more effectively.”
