P.4 Teen Convening

January 20, 2018

The P.4 Teen Convening will gather youth from across New Orleans to reflect and respond to the city-wide exhibition, Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp.

P.4 invites a conversation about the transnational movement of human bodies and the constellation of cultural artifacts that move with them - objects, sounds, movements, memories. This convening will be used to reflect on New Orleans as a meaningful and unique focal point in this ongoing global history, from colonialism and the Transatlantic Slave trade, to current debates about culture and representation in the city.
