ART/world: Okwui Enwezor's Curatorial Excellence Award

My friend and colleague Okwui Enwezor received the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, "Curatorial Excellence Award" on April 22. This week's ART/world celebrates this event, and Okwui's exemplary career. Here are some of the photos from the award reception at Gotham Hall, NY. It occurred to me that not since Documenta11 in 2002, had this many from our circle of friends convened for a wonderful evening!
