The internationally renowned DJ-producer and rave master Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim, has joined forces with Lisbon-based visual artist Vhils to curate a brand new exhibition inspired by the symbol he holds most dear, the smiley, as Mixmag reports.
The new exhibition, which Cook has named Smile High Club, will open on June 21 at Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal. Spending over 40 years building up what very well might be the most extensive collection of smiley face memorabilia and art in the world, Cook is taking his extensive collection of objects and putting on display for the public to see.
“The only thing that isn’t for sale in the exhibition is my smiley collection,” Cook tells The Guardian. “In it is everything from a motorcycle helmet to condoms, to a toaster, portable ashtrays, slippers, cuff links, lighters – basically anything you can stick a smiley on.”
