Prospect New Orleans, the International Contemporary Art Biennial, has announced the curatorial framework and artists to be featured in its third installment, “Prospect.3: Notes for Now.”  The exhibition will take place in about 15 indoor and outdoor venues throughout New Orleans from October 25, 2014 through January 25, 2015.

Most of the Prospect.3 installations are free and open to the public; the only exceptions being those that are in museums that normally charge admission fees. (Venues that may charge admission are indicated with an asterisk in the list below.)

The three-month exhibition will showcase the work of 61 leading and emerging contemporary artists from roughly 25 nations, including the United States. Nine of the artists are from New Orleans.

Each artist will be offered a dedicated space to exhibit at one of the selected venues, with a number of artists commissioned to produce site-specific projects. Many of these projects engage in some way with the Crescent City’s unique culture, and offer distinctive interpretations of the city, both past and present.

This is the fourth New Orleans installment in the Prospect series that began in 2008. One of the highlights of this year’s event will be the exhibition of several paintings of the great French Post-Impressionist, Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) at the New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park.

Prospect.3 will kick off on the evening of October 24 with a benefit party/fundraising event at the Contemporary Arts Center, 900 Camp Street, in the Warehouse Arts District downtown.

Throughout the exhibition there will be a number of other special events and offerings, including lectures and a bicycle tour of some of the outdoor art installations. For more information about rentals, visit
