Portable Art Project: when art meets jewelry


Portable Art Project: when art meets jewelry

An exhibition of wearable objects that exist somewhere between sculpture and bodily adornment
 

Portable Art Project is an ambitious idea in which art and jewelry come together. All started with an invitation to artist Louise Bourgeois, who in 2008 conceived different rope- like precious metal cuffs. In the years since Bourgeois designed these first contributions, the initiative has evolved to include 15 artists: John Baldessari, Phyllida Barlow, Stefan Brüggemann, 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. Seen not only as accessories, but also as formal sculptural issues, the artists’ pieces have been on view at Hauser & Wirth’s uptown space, in an exhibition organized by Celia Forner, who collaborated closely with the artists, in order to express the personal connection between every piece and the wearer.
