Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp

November 18, 2017 to February 25, 2018

Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, the fourth iteration of this citywide exhibition opening November 18, 2017, and running through February 25, 2018, alludes to the city’s unique cultural landscape as a creative force.

Cultural synthesis and syncretism inform many of the central issues explored in Prospect.4. The rich diversity of New Orleans is rooted in a long his-tory of human interactions includ-ing colonization, the transatlantic slave trade, waves of migration and displacement and Gulf Coast trade buoyed by the city’s position as the American South’s largest port. Many artists in P.4 explore related themes, connecting them to contemporary geographies and cultures around the world.
