Prospect 4 Opening

The fourth iteration of Prospect New Orleans’ international art exhibition, Prospect.4 (P.4), will open to the public at the New Orleans Jazz Museum (NOJM) on Saturday, November 18th, 2017 from 10am-5pm. 

P.4 brings together 73 artists from North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the European powers that colonized New Orleans, addressing issues of identity, displacement and cultural hybridity within the context of the celebration of the city’s Tricentennial. 

The theme, The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, alludes to the city’s unique cultural landscape as a creative force. The artists featured were identified and selected by P.4 Artistic Director Trevor Schoonmaker and their placement at NOJM was determined in collaboration with NOJM’s curatorial team, taking into consideration how the museum could best complement the distinctive style of each individual contributor.

These artists include Larry Achiampong, Michael Armitage, Satch Hoyt, Rashid Johnson, Darryl Montana, Rivane Neuenschwander, Dario Robleto, Hank Willis Thomas, Peter Williams, and the late Louis Armstrong.

Free and open to the public.

Prospect.4 will also host VIP Preview Days of the city-wide triennial on Thursday, November 16th, and Friday, November 17th, with the Swamp Galaxy Gala 2017 on Friday evening, November 17th. Learn
