On September 25th, Audis Husar Fine Art gallery will present the show Afrika, with artwork from the Anajuwa Collection. The exhibit will feature, southern African artists, Lutanda Mwamba, Mwamba Mulangala, Enock Illunga, Vincentio Phiri, Style Kunda and various tribal artifacts.  The show will also feature a screening of the film “We Live in Public,” directed by Ondi Timoner, winner of the Grand jury documentary prize at the Sundance Film festival in 2009. Proceeds from the exhibit will benefit the Pilot Light Foundation, a charity dedicated to support humanitarian work in Africa. Audis Husar Fine Art is both a traditional fine art gallery as well as collaborative exhibition space for established and emerging artists and filmmakers from around the globe.

The Anajuwa collection was recently created to showcase contemporary African art. Working with local artists based in Africa, the Anajuwa organizes regular showings and exhibitions of the innovative work still relatively unknown to the Los Angeles art world. Contemporary African art, while rich in content, remains a new and growing field, with endless hybrid influences. Often beyond current classification, contemporary work shatters conventional barriers, as the borders between modern and traditional styles become increasingly vague. Created by LCO Client, Gloria Huwiler, the Anajuwa collection was formed to provide greater access to African Art, in this still untapped field. The purpose of the collection is to support African ingenuity and Anajuwa is honored to work the Pilot Life Foundation to improve the lives of people at risk in Africa.

The opening of Afrika will take place at the Audis Husar gallery, between 6 pm and 9:30 pm on September 25th, and the exhibit will run for two months. The screening of the film “We live in public” will be followed by a question and answer session by the director. Please visit www.pilotlifefund.org to RSVP for the screening.
