Exhibition surveys the work of Italian calligrapher Luca Barcellona, whose style emerges from the intersection of graffiti and classic calligraphy. The artist has painted a new mural especially for the NYUAD campus, and the exhibition features more than 50 of his original works. His lettering has been used by companies such as Carhartt, Nike, Sony BMG, and Volvo; his work has been exhibited in Milan, Australia, and The Netherlands. Lazy Dog press recently published an illustrated survey of his work, also titled Take Your Pleasure Seriously. This exhibition of Barcellona's work was initiated by Goffredo Puccetti, graphic designer and professor at NYUAD.

The exhibitions are open to the public weekly.
