Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America, co-curated by Mark Nash

March 2, 2021

Currently on view at the New Museum in New York is the exhibition "Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America", originally conceived by Okwui Enwezor (1963-2019) for the New Museum, and presented with curatorial support from advisors Naomi Beckwith, Massimiliano Gioni, Glenn Ligon, and Mark Nash. 


The exhibition received positive reviews in both The New York Times and The New Yorker


It is an intergenerational exhibition, bringing together thirty-seven artists working in a variety of mediums who have addressed the concept of mourning, commemoration, and loss as a direct response to the national emergency of racist violence experienced by Black communities across America.


It further considers the intertwined phenomena of Black grief and a politically orchestrated white grievance, as each structures and defines contemporary American social and political life. 


Mark Nash was also part of curatorial roundtable hosted during the opening week and you can watch the recording of that public event here


The exhibition runs until June 6, 2021
