For Design Miami 2023, Southern Guild presents a collection of richly handcrafted objects in which nature’s presence is unleashed in a profusion of forms that twist, morph and grow before our eyes. With an emphasis on three-dimensionality, these functional and sculptural works encompass moments of play and quiet reflection, escape and wild release.
About Southern Guild
Expertise/ Contemporary collectible South African design
Established in 2008 by Trevyn and Julian McGowan, Southern Guild represents contemporary artists from Africa and its diaspora. With a focus on Africa’s rich tradition of utilitarian and ritualistic art, the gallery furthers the continent’s contribution to global art movements. Southern Guild’s artists explore the preservation of culture, spirituality, ancestral knowledge, and ecology within our current landscape. Their work is in the Metropolitan Museum, LACMA, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Denver Art Museum, Vitra Museum, and National Gallery of Victoria. Located in Cape Town, Southern Guild will open in Los Angeles in February 2024.
