Prospect New Orleans Reveals Artists for “Prospect.3: Notes for Now”

Prospect New Orleans, the International Contemporary Art Biennial, announced the curatorial framework and artists to be featured in its third installment, “Prospect.3: Notes for Now,” on view October 25, 2014 through January 25, 2015 across New Orleans.

Franklin Sirmans, the Terri and Michael Smooke Department Head and Curator of Contemporary Art at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), is serving as the Artistic Director for “Prospect.3: Notes for Now.” The three-month exhibition will showcase the work of more than 50 leading and emerging contemporary artists from around the globe. Founded on the principle that art engenders social progress, the biennial and all related events will be free and open to the public.*

Each artist will be offered a dedicated space to exhibit at one of over 15 venues, with a number of artists commissioned to produce site-specific projects. Many projects engage in some way with the Crescent City’s unique culture, and offer distinctive interpretations of the city, both past and present.

Guided by several curatorial themes, P.3’s exhibitions, site-specific installations and new works will address: The New Orleans Experience,  Seeing Oneself in the Other, The South, Crime and Punishment, Movie going, The Carnivalesque, Abstraction, Visual Sound, and will seamlessly tie together the largesse of the show through commissions by several artists under the moniker, All Together Now.

The biennial will be open to the public Wednesdays through Sundays, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.,
