Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America, is a catalog for an exhibition originally conceived by Okwui Enwezor (1963-2019) for the New Museum. Grief and Grievance brings together artists working in various 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 show was presented with support from curatorial advisors Naomi Beckwith, Massimiliano Gioni, Glenn Ligon, and Mark Nash.
