Red Hook Labs and Nataal present New African Photography III, their third annual exhibition featuring emerging and established photographers and filmmakers whose work engages with contemporary Africa. From a range of fresh perspectives come works that seek present afro-positive narratives and address a diverse set of concerns relating to representation, gender and identity. This year’s show focuses entirely on young female voices from Africa and its diaspora.
Labs is a public-benefit corporation located in Red Hook, Brooklyn and Downtown Los Angeles, dedicated to establishing creative communities and self-sustaining businesses in developing areas.
Nataal is a global media brand celebrating contemporary African visual arts, fashion, music and society. Having originally launched digitally in 2015, and hosted several cultural events in major cities since then, Nataal now publishes its debut print magazine this May in association with Red Hook Labs.
New African Photography III runs through May 13, 2018.
