Prospect.3: Notes for Now

Article excerpt

THE INTERNATIONAL contemporary art biennial Prospect New Orleans returns this fall with its third installment, Prospect.3: Notes for Now, on view October 25, 2014, until January 25, 2015, across New Orleans.

The three-month exhibition will showcase the work of more than fifty leading contemporary artists from around the globe, including established greats like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ed Clark, Alma Thomas, and Paul Gauguin, as well as notable emerging figures such as Hew Locke, Pieter Hugo, and Pushpamala N.

Franklin Sirmans, the Terri and Michael Smooke Department Head and Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is serving as the artistic director for Prospect.3: Notes for Now. The biennial will take place at eighteen venues across the city and offer a number of commissioned, site-specific projects. Many projects engage in some way with New Orleans's unique culture and offer distinctive interpretations of the city, both past and present.

In addition to showing their work, many artists will be invited to participate in a myriad of educational and public programs. A fully illustrated catalog, featuring documentation of P.3 and essays on the exhibition, will also be produced.

As part of its mission to support the local arts community, Prospect New Orleans has implemented a satellite program for each biennial edition, this year rechristened P.3+. This program highlights concurrent exhibitions and arts events featuring local artists during the opening weekend and throughout the course of the biennial. P.3+ Regional takes this concept a step farther, showcasing local artists in Baton Rouge, Hammond, and Lafayette.
