Ethan Cohen KuBe in collaboration with Gloria Huwiler will showcase Zambia’s leading contemporary artists to commemorate Zambia’s 50th Independence Day celebration. The exhibition provides an insight into the creation of modern African cultural identity half a century after colonialism. Beyond the resistance of early independence movements, contemporary Zambian painter’s influences are a complex fusion of traditional and modern influences that characterize the postmodern African subject. This exhibition is a visual translation of the hybrid integration that is the hallmark of Zambia’s national identity.
Artists in the show include William Bwalya Miko, Geoffrey Phiri, Mwamba Mulangala, Lutanda Mwamba, Vincentio Phiri, Stary Mwaba, Style Kunda, Enock Illunga, Rikki Lungu, Nyrienda, James ZImba, Linda Chandia, Gladys Kalichini, Peter Mwaibwe, and The Zata Brothers.
Please join us at KuBe for our opening reception on Saturday, November 8th from 2 p.m. - 7 p.m.
