Contemporary artists see the human body as a canvas for expression as well as for adornment. By creating pieces for the body, they blur the line between functionality and embellishment, storytelling and shock appeal, and design and aesthetics. In line with its direction to feature Design as Art/Art as Design, the Yuchengco Museum is spearheading a series of exhibits entitled ArtWearAble. The ArtWearAble series will highlight artists who not only explore materials and design, but also merge the traditional, ethnic, or elegant with the industrial, recycled, outrageous, and innovative. The result is works of art meant to be worn as daring statements with drama and flair.

The inaugural group exhibit will present expressive fine art and modern jewelry by the country’s most recognized painters, sculptors, designers, and architects. These creative minds seek to elevate body ornamentation such as jewelry to the level of fine art and original design, rather than mere craft or production. The first exhibit in the series includes works by National Artist for Visual Arts Arturo Luz, jeweler Hans Brumann, nationalist sculptor Eduardo Castrillo, architect and sculptor Ramon Orlina, sculptor and Movement 8 designer Ann Pamintuan, glass artist Impy Pilapil, and mixed media and installation artists Michelline Syjuco and Leeroy New.
