“Portable Art. A Project by Celia Forner”
June 23rd – August 12th, 2018
Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles: 901 E 3rd Street
On June 23rd, Hauser & Wirth will present its Portable Art Project in Los Angeles with an exhibition of wearable objects commissioned from a range of artists including John Baldessari, Pipilotti Rist, Paul McCarthy and Louise Bourgeois. Organized by jewelry designer and art collector Celia Forner, the project includes unique pieces as well as editioned series crafted from an array of materials ranging from traditional gold and silver to enamel, aluminum, bronze and iron. The portable art initiative began with an invitation to famed artist Louise Bourgeois, who in 2008 designed spiral-like precious metal cuffs for the project. Since then, numerous other artists have joined, creating unique and (sometimes) wearable collectibles.
