This season of ONX will showcase a short film and magazine that explores redefining Black womxn's death. Season 03 will be showcased at B4bel4b Gallery on February 25th 2017. There will be a small book of poems written by Jackie Iyamah and Malcolm Thompson that will further explore the five stages of grief. The print will be available for purchase the night of the event.
The goal of [Copper ] is to redefine the five stages of grief, re-imagining how Black womxn throughout America endure collective trauma. Enduring grief is framed not as a process of victimization but a method of transcending the current plane. A cycle of deconstructing and reconstructing that occurs more than once; how [Copper] interprets these five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
We collaborated with bay area photographers, cinematographers, fashion designers, make up artists, and musicians of color.
