This week, we highlight a conversation sparked by Nigerian-born curator Okwui Enwezor, director of the 56th Venice Art Biennale, about the expanded black presence in the global contemporary art scene. Recording in Venice, Cathy Byrd connected with Canadian curators Camille Turner, Andrea Fatona, Sally Frater, and Pamela Edmonds to speak about this new development.
