Lincoln never ate anything yellow, AKA: tendencies will define you.
Laundry induced Nostalgia: An old lady spends all day washing her laundry. Every ten minutes she shuffles over to the door, taking the shortest path possible, and lights a smoke inside. She takes a puff and slowly exhales the smoke as she squeezes through an old lady-sized sliver she makes between the door and its frame. When she returns to her machine, she notices her fabric softener box and is reminded of that afternoon she spent in the clouds looking for blue sparkle, the softest afternoon of her life.

HAPPY COLLABORATIONISTS is a Chicago based collective, consisting of Anna Trier, Hadley Vogel, and Meredith Weber. The focus of “Happy C” is to provide a platform for the creation and exhibition of performance, installation and new media derived works. We curate artists, not art and work with individuals to execute new projects rooted in ephemeral arts and audience experience. Donning blue wigs as a visual moniker of artistic solidarity, Happy C is committed to bridging the gap between art and art events – curation as art.
