The growing fervor in Washington around celebrating today’s sources of African creativity can only bring about more good things. The musical explosion continues to flourish in more spaces, but style and visual art need the same level of attention. Supafrik is a pop-up shop and temporium opening this evening at Gallery O on H St. First launched in Toronto, Supafrik is making its D.C. debut with four days of fashion shows, dance parties, art displays, food tastings and live performances showcasing modern African style. Thursday’s opening features a fashion show with Nigerian-born designer Chinedu Ukabam’s Chinedesign label and music by R&B singer Wayna, who was born in Ethiopia and makes her home in D.C.
