Laura Owens Designed iMessage Stickers for the Whitney—All for Free Download

One of the stickers in action.


As the Whitney Museum’s mid-career survey of work from Laura Owens winds down before its end next month, the institution has offered up a series of 50 iMessage stickers created by the artist, free to download.

In what feels like the completion of some sort of feedback loop for an artist who is no stranger to mixing up the contemporary and the traditional, the iMessage stickers are based on a series of hand-carved porcelain sculptures created by Owens that in themselves resemble real-space versions of popular phone emojis. The beat goes on. Download the stickers now at the Apple App Store and send them to your friends. And go see the Owens exhibition while it remains on view through February 4.
