This week: the curator Naomi Beckwith and artist Okwui Okpokwasili discuss Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America (until 6 June), a major show at the New Museum in New York—the final project conceived by the late curator Okwui Enwezor. Also, we explore the effect of Covid-19 on artists with disabilities: we talk to the artist Cara Macwilliam and to Hannah Whitlock and Laura Miles from the UK charity Outside In. If you are an artist, or know an artist, who would be interested in joining Outside In, or work for an organisation which would be keen to work with the charity, visit their website or call +44 1903 898171.
