About ‘Objects of Contemplation’
‘Objects of Contemplation’ celebrates over five years of collaborative exhibitions with artist-makers from across the UK and Europe, spanning disciplines from wood to ceramic, textile, metal, stone and mixed materials. Launching in Somerset in March 2024, an iteration of the show will travel to London in May 2024, demonstrating Make Hauser & Wirth’s long-term commitment to contemporary craft and, above all, to the exceptional individuals who have been at the core of the program since its inception. Curated in dialogue with each other, the 19 featured artist-makers present singular works that exemplify their current practice. Characterized by the unique relationship between material and maker, broader conceptual and aesthetic concerns are brought to the fore through formal research, the complex layering of narratives and contextual enquiry.

The exhibition will be on view at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset from Saturday 16 March through Sunday 12 May 2024.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
