For this exhibit, Grief & Grievance: Art and Mourning in America, the New Museum assembled the work of 37 artists whose multigenerational work addressed the mourning, commemoration, and loss associated with racist violence across the United States. The works encompass video, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, sound, and performance—mainly made in the last decade, some expressly for this exhibition, and augmented by several key historical works by Nari Ward, Mel Edwards and Jack Whitten. Other artists include: Howardina Pindell, Arthur Jafa, Hank Willis Thomas, Dawoud Bey, Theaster Gates, Kerry James Marshall and others.
