Exclusive product collaborations to mark our 10th anniversary
30 Jul 2021
To celebrate The Hepworth Wakefield’s 10th anniversary, the gallery has commissioned a series of creative collaborations with a range of artists and designers, exclusive to The Hepworth Wakefield Shop. The new product ranges will be released for sale throughout the 10th anniversary year, with all profits directly supporting The Hepworth Wakefield.
First to be announced is a fashion edit by JW ANDERSON. Revisiting the popular and critically acclaimed 2017 exhibition, Disobedient Bodies: JW Anderson Curates The Hepworth Wakefield, this exclusive new range comprises a unisex t-shirt, tote bag and pair of earrings.
The exhibition gathered together a selection of more than 100 objects, personally selected by Jonathan Anderson, spanning art, fashion, ceramics and design in a series of unexpected and irreverent groupings to explore how the human form has been reimagined by artists and designers across the last century. At the centre of the exhibition was a specially-created installation – 28 Jumpers – made up of a forest of oversized jumpers through which visitors could walk and interact with the different materials.
About the birthday collaboration Jonathan Anderson said: “I’m so delighted to collaborate once again with The Hepworth Wakefield and make a small contribution to their 10th birthday year. Working with the gallery on the 2017 exhibition, Disobedient Bodies, changed my viewpoint on design, fashion and art, for which I will always be grateful.”
