Grief and Grievance
Art and Mourning in America
Feb 17, 2021 – Jun 6, 2021
New Museum / New York

The New Museum presents 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, Massimiliano Gioni, Glenn Ligon, and Mark Nash. Grief and Grievance will be 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.

The exhibition will further consider the intertwined phenomena of Black grief and a politically orchestrated white grievance, as each structures and defines contemporary American social and political life. Grief and Grievance will comprise works encompassing video, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, sound, and performance made in the last decade, along with several key historical works and a series of new commissions created in response to the concept of the exhibition.

Artists include Kerry James Marshall, Julie Mehretu, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lorna Simpson, Henry Taylor, among many others.
