Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America (2020)
Join us as we celebrate the opening of “Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America,” an exhibition originally conceived by Okwui Enwezor (1963-2019) for the New Museum, and presented with curatorial support from advisors Naomi Beckwith, Manilow Senior Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson Artistic Director of the New Museum, Glenn Ligon, artist, and Mark Nash, Professor at the University of California in Santa Cruz. This conversation will convene all four curatorial advisors to discuss the exhibition, its genesis and development alongside the advisors’s friendships and professional relationships with Okwui Enwezor.
