Prospect New Orleans was conceived in the tradition of the great international exhibitions, such as the Venice Biennale and the Bienal de São Paulo, to showcase new artistic practices from around the world in settings that are both historic and culturally exceptional, and contribute to the cultural economy of New Orleans and the Louisiana Gulf region. The first two Prospect exhibitions have drawn widespread critical praise and inspired the creation of some of the most iconic artworks in recent memory. Times-Picayune critic Doug MacCash called Prospect.2 “an avant-garde art treasure hunt, destined to please all aesthetic adventurers…one of the best contemporary art shows New Orleans has ever seen.”
The fourth iteration of Prospect New Orleans' international art exhibition, Prospect.4 (P.4), will open to the public on Saturday, November 11, 2017 and run through February 25, 2018, aligning with the City of New Orleans's Tricentennial celebration.
