A great curator, Okwui Enwezor, just died. Get to know him, please, and the work that he did to change the course of art history, from Documenta 11 to the Palais de Tokyo Triennale and the Venice Biennale. You will miss him, too. #okwuienwezor Paola Antonelli's photo on Okwui Enwezor

We are devastated to learn of the death of Okwui Enwezor. One of the most important thinkers of recent decades, his curating and writing was characterised by its erudition, compassion & originality. He was a fierce believer in the power of art to change the world. #okwuienwezor

Another great pioneer taken too soon. Okwui Enwezor (23 October 1963 - 15 March 2019) totally rewrote the curatorial script and cast a new kind of light over what we thought we knew about the world. Thank you for your wisdom and guidance Okwui #GoneTooSoon Iniva's photo on Okwui Enwezor

It is with deepest sorrow that I record the death of Okwui Enwezor - friend, mentor, epoch-making curator, under whose baton I was privileged to co-curate the 7th Gwangju Biennale, and who taught me so much over 20 years. Goodbye, Okwui. It was far far too early for you to go. Ranjit Hoskote's photo on Okwui Enwezor
