Summary

A catalogue accompanying the must-see triennial exhibition--opening in October 2021--based in New Orleans that art world insiders consider an essential platform to see the most important art of our moment.

Prospect New Orleans is a citywide contemporary art triennial that was conceived in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Emphasizing collaborative partnerships and site-specificity, Prospect presents artwork by local, national, and international artists in both traditional and highly unexpected environments. In the third iteration of this major exhibition, star curators Naima Keith and Diana Nawi bring together 50 artists to engage New Orleans as context as they reconsider the concept of history, both global and local. Through many artistic stratgeies, architectural interventions and public activations, the exhibition explores current social annd political conditions that ask for a reconsideration of the past.
The accompanying catalogue - a rich collection of contributions from curators, poets, artists, and cultural critics--considers several key themes that animate the ambitious artist projects: landscape and history; seeing and documentation; ritual and performance; intimacy and domesticity. In addition to several essays, each of the 50 artists included in the show will have entries describing their practice and the work in the show.
