From The Production Line of Happiness, by Christopher Williams at the MOMA.[/caption]We all got happy because Pharrell told us to. Now, we get happy once again as the MOMA presents The Production Line of Happiness
, a new retrospective of work by artist Christopher Williams. Using various techniques, including photography and Super 8 video, Williams examines the capitalist society and the role of imagery in conspicuous consumption. The title of the retrospective gives a nod to Jean-Luc Godard, a filmmaker who famously aligned his hobby editing film featuring the bucolic Swiss countryside to his experience as a factory worker.[caption id="attachment_3514" align="alignleft" width="800"]

). It’s an interesting conversation opener on the power of imagery and its role driving emotion and desire. Until November 2.
