Conversation – 7-8:30pm, Theater
Allison Glenn, Manager of Publications and Curatorial Associate for Prospect.4, and Lauren Domino, Independent Producer, come together to discuss Kahlil Joseph’s short film, Wildcat (Aunt Janet) (2016), presented by the artist for the Prospect.4 Triennial. The film, scored by experimental producer Flying Lotus, centers on rodeo performers in Grayson, Oklahoma; a town defined, similar to New Orleans, by narratives of community created through the intersection of an Indigenous way of life and the Black Diaspora. Wildcat is on view through February 25, 2018, at the Prospect.4 Welcome Center and Gallery, 750 Carondelet, New Orleans, LA.
