Guggenheim Together "Handmade"
Guggenheim Together "Handmade"

The global constellation of Guggenheim museums (which includes @guggenheim_venice, @museoguggenheim, and Abu Dhabi) believes that making art and sharing it helps us find significance in our individual experiences, while viewing art by others enables us to look at the world from different perspectives.


Artists are often known for creating art by hand, sometimes in collaboration with others, while others utilize various technologies that remove them from the physical process of making art entirely. Guggenheim Together has selected a number of works to celebrate art made by hand. We invite you to create something handmade to express an important moment, idea, process, or to showcase something you created. You can post your response using the hashtag #GuggenheimTogether for the chance to have your work featured on our international Instagrams!
