We love good news, Hello Joburgers, and we’re excited to hear Southern Guild has a beautiful collection, featuring some fantastic new work by their foremost designer-artists, making its way to Design Miami 2017 this month! Yay for local talent doing great things overseas!
This year, the collection expresses a conviction that the voice of this continent, and not the received wisdom of others, is the most vital and relevant inspiration. Layered with historical and cultural references, the works have a clarity of focus distilled to graphic silhouettes, compelling texture and the interplay of colour and form.
Southern Guild have spearheaded the collectible design category in Africa, propelling artist-designers to make challenging, complex work. Curated exhibitions, fertile collaborations and strategic partnerships have redefined perceptions of African design and established Southern Guild as a relevant and ground-breaking player in the global design arena.
Hosted annually, Design Miami is a global forum for design. It brings together the influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. It’s the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design. Artists showing in Miami include Jan Bekker, Dokter and Misses, Andile Dyalvane, Madoda Fani, Porky Hefer and many more. Well done to all our local artists who will be heading over with their work!
