On March 27 -  29, Benedict Nguyen will curate the corpus is exquisite, the equinox is vernal (ceev), serving as a mini weekend-long residency for movement makers Malcolm-x Betts and Ogemdi Ude, with the support of collaborator and astrologer Stephanie George, featuring public showings, workshops, and discussions showcasing vital elements of their process.

For the corpus is exquisite, the equinox is vernal, Malcolm-x and Ogemdi's practices overlap around questions of Black intergenerational trauma and possibilities for healing and kinship.
