The exhibition, which includes mixed media paintings and wall sculptures made of engraved oxidized steel sheets and granite elements mounted on wood speak to a Black woman’s perspective on the body as architectural sacred space; the load of loss and mourning of Black bodies brutalized by the police and by a virus which does discriminate when it comes to people of color. The exhibition also reflects the dynamic resistance of a people who believe that justice might still be attained.
