We're deeply sorry to hear today about the passing of Okwui Enwezor, a curator with a global vision and influence who has left a deep and indelible mark on museum practice worldwide.
In a recent interview with ICA Chief Curator Eva Respini for an upcoming ICA publication on art and migration, Okwui reflected on the role of museums and curators in our uncertain times: 'In looking at the period 1960 to 1980, and specifically at the notion of the postcolonial, we see the rise of social movements that were about the decolonization of everyday life—the environmental movement, the anti-War movement, civil rights, feminism, antiracist movements, indigenous movements, gay rights, you can go on and on. Think of all the amazing work that came out of that. Today we should focus more on the extragovernmental strategies of the ’60s. A lot can be achieved—it might take a long time but it’s needed. I think that curators and artists have a very significant role to play in that.' – Okwui Enwezor
