Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America
Glenn Ligon, Okwui Enwezor, Massimiliano Gioni, Naomi Beckwith, and Mark Nash
In recent years, the world has seen the rise of white nationalism in the United States and the tragic persistence of violence against African Americans. Featuring works by more than 30 artists and writings by leading scholars and art historians, this book and its accompanying exhibition give voice to artists addressing mourning, commemoration, and loss. It considers their engagement with social movements, from civil rights to Black Lives Matter, that Black grief has galvanized.
