AFRO FUNKÉ is back in Venice at Townhouse & Del Monte Speakeasy for one last 2018 stomp, just in time for the holidays! Your friendly resident good guys JEREMY SOLE and yours truly GLENN RED will be rockin’ the decks with those soulful, rhythmic, deep-rooted sounds from all over the world that have steadily packed the dance floor in Los Angeles’ westside for a decade and a half. Plus, in his AF debut, Ghana/LA’s DJ BLAQ PAGES brings the hot afrobeats repertoire that has been lighting up the city for the last few years.

About the Exhibition
Featuring more than 150 artworks from eastern and central Africa and the western Indian Ocean rim, World on the Horizon enters the streets and homes of Swahili port towns and beyond, highlighting the arts of diplomacy and trade, the built environment and domestic interiors, society and fashion, and spiritual knowledge and devotion. The arts on view speak to an outward-looking ethos—one of encounter, possibility, negotiation, and struggle—that connects communities on the Swahili coast with faraway places, and reveals how people bring the world home.
World on the Horizon was organized by Krannert Art Museum (KAM), University of Illinois at Urbana‐Champaign, and was curated by Prita Meier, Associate Professor of Art History at New York University, and Allyson Purpura, KAM Senior Curator and Curator of Global African Art. This exhibition has been made possible in part by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor. Additional sponsorship provided by the ADAA Foundation Curatorial Award and the Association of Art Museum Curators, College of Fine + Applied Arts Matching Funding Program and Creative Research Award, University of Illinois at Urbana‐Champaign Campus Research Board, and Krannert Art Museum.
Major funding for the Los Angeles presentation is provided by the Martha and Avrum Bluming Exhibition Fund with additional support from the Shirley and Ralph Shapiro Director’s Discretionary Fund, the Barbara and Joseph Goldenberg Fund, the George R. and Nancy L. Ellis Endowment Fund, the Fowler Exhibition Fund, and Ellen Perlmutter and Edward Jones.
