An exciting new group exhibition, on show from 19 July to 12 September 2018 at Southern Guild in Cape Town’s Silo District, promises to immerse viewers in a world of colour.

Inspired by the Colour Field painters of the 1950s/’60s, the exhibition features work from designers and artists such as Ronel Jordaan, Tonic, Xavier Clarisse and Zizipho Poswa, as well as up-and-comers such as industrial designer August de Wet, jewellery designer Eric Loubser and fashion designer and weaver Nicholas Coutts.

The exhibition features works made in glass, leather, aluminium, wood, fabric and clay, showcasing pieces that experiment with how light and texture blend with modern furniture, textiles, lighting and ceramics.

The GUILD store will simultaneously feature ceramics by Clementina van der Walt, Carin Dorrington and Ben Orkin, all of whom had to respond to Colour Field in their own way.
