Julie Mehretu - Grief and Grievance New Museum

In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. 

The New Museum presents Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America, an exhibition originally conceived by Okwui Enwezor (1963-2019) for the museum. It 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 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. The exhibition 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.

Participating artist: Julie Mehretu.
