Just 2 days ago, Hauser & Wirth debuts its Portable Art Project with an exhibition of wearable objects they have commissioned from fifteen artists — pieces that are sitting somewhere between sculptures and wearable art.

Curated by Celia Forner, who worked on it directly with the artists, the project includes uniques as well as editions, all crafted from various materials from gold via enamel or semi-precious gems to iron. The initiative began with an exquisitely-crafted gold cuff conceived by Louise Bourgeois.


In the years since Bourgeois designed these first contributions, the Portable Art Project has evolved to include the likes of John Baldessari, Subodh Gupta, Mary Heilmann, Andy Hope 1930, Cristina Iglesias, Matthew Day Jackson, Bharti Kher, Nate Lowman, Paul McCarthy, Caro Niederer, Michele Oka Doner, and Pipilotti Rist.
