Keith is looking for African artists whose work feels fresh and exciting on his latest trip to South Africa, and he has asked his African agent Trevyn McGowan to lead him to “anything different, anything unusual.” Trevyn suggests focusing on ceramics, one of South Africa’s major strengths, and she has places in mind in Capetown and Johannesburg. As they drive from one stop to the next, they make unexpected discoveries at roadside workshops and even at a small café. The final stop is Magpie, a renowned studio in Barrydale that is pushing the envelope in high-end recycled design. Back home, Keith curates a gallery exhibition at Anthropologie’s Rockefeller Center location.
