As part of the First Open | South Kensington | Post-War and Contemporary Art auction, Christie’s is collaborating with Southern Guild and The New Craftsmen to present Contemporary Living: Art, Craft & Design, an exhibition and auction showcasing the work of a diverse group of contemporary artists, designers and craftspeople from the two stables. The exhibition design transforms itself over the four days through a series of interventions, generating new visual vignettes and creating an experience that encourages the audience to make connections and discover each object anew. At the heart of the exhibition is the ‘Patron’s House’, an installation and scale model of the space and the works in the auction that invites visitors to ‘play’ with the arrangement, creating their own narratives and spaces.

Iconic Southern Guild pieces that will go on auction include Charles Haupt’s ‘Num Num Tables’, Conrad Hicks’ ‘Copper Chaise’, David Krynauw’s ‘Haywire Chandelier’, Dokter and Misses’ ‘Kassena Isibheqe’, John Murray and Paco Pakdoust’s rug collaboration titled ‘Oust’, Meyer von Wielligh’s ‘Leaf Sideboard’, the ‘Southern Guild Chair’ by Anatomy Design in collaboration with Nicky Levenberg, Xandre Kriel’s ‘Vos Altar’ and Porky Hefer’s fantastical ‘Fallen Bird’s Nest’, among other pieces from the gallery’s collection.
