Khalik Allah's Field Niggaz is an immersive documentary film that “seeks to give a voice to the voiceless and a face to the faceless” (Hollywood Reporter). Allah is an acclaimed NYC street photographer who focuses his digital video camera on the impoverished nighttime denizens who hang out at the corner of 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem.

The Spring 2016 Nesnadny + Schwartz Visiting Curator is Cornelia Lauf, curator of MOCA’s upcoming Fall 2016 exhibition, Wall to Wall: Carpets by Artists. For her talk, Lauf will detail her curatorial approach to organizing this exhibition. Wall to Wall features work from a wide cross-section of contemporary artists, and their weaving partners, who engage this medium—once considered a “minor art”—as a compelling focus for artistic inquiry. The interchange between artist, producer, and artisan is of particular interest for Lauf.
