AgavePrint presents Khalik Allah photography exhibition + film screening
Real Subjects is a vivid and visceral portrayal of urban life and the human characters that inhabit it. Shooting at 125th and Lexington in Harlem, Allah’s street photography gives a powerful glimpse into the spirit and character of those living there.
AgavePrint presents this photographic work and opening reception in conjunction with the screening of Field Niggas, taking place from 7-8 pm, the award-winning film hailed as one of The New Yorker Magazine’s “Best Films of 2015.” The film takes its name from Malcolm X’s famous speech, Message to the Grassroots, and has received recent acclaim in the festival and college circuits along with noted press in both The New York Times and Time Magazine. Field Niggas explores the lives of Harlem’s street dwellers with a rich use of color, dreamlike motion sequences and fades, and an intimate narrative. Real Subjects is an exhibition of still photography from the artist.
