Everard Read goes big on ceramics at RMB Latitudes Art Fair


The Sculpture Garden

Few people ever have the opportunity to try their hand at fashioning an object out of stone, wood or clay. Sculptures can come across as the ‘artistic other’ – the sort of work that's only found in museums or the landscaped gardens of the mega-wealthy.

By comparison, we all grow up scribbling marks and splatting colour into schoolbooks. Equally, we spend all our days looking at flat images on screens and so, strokes of paint filling a flat canvas or lines of charcoal on paper are instinctively familiar.

But take a walk through the Everard Read sculpture garden at this year’s RMB Latitude’s Art Fair in sunny Joburg and you’ll realise that these three-dimensional artworks are just as accessible and engaging as paintings. The pieces dotted amongst the lush foliage of Shepstone Gardens will offer a collective sense of form, texture and impressive craftsmanship guaranteed to bring the medium to life. Whether you’re a fan of abstraction, figures or simply art that makes you smile, we think you'll fall in love with at least one of the works on show.

Featured artists include Atang Tshikare, Deborah Bell, Githan Coopoo, Gail Catlin and Nandipha Mntambo, and the Everard Read Johannesburg team will be on hand to chat to you about all the pieces on display.


Lucinda Mudge x Frédéric Malle

Elsewhere at the fair, you don’t want to miss the combination of 5 magnificent Lucinda Mudge ceramics that have been paired with corresponding perfumes from cult French fragrance brand, Frédéric Malle. As always, Mudge’s works are gutsy, humorous, and fantastically fashioned. Take a gander (and a spritz) and then decide which vase and scent combo floats your boat most.


The RMB Latitudes Art Fair takes place from 24-26 May 2024. Tickets are available at latitudesartfair.com/tickets
