Curating Prospect New Orleans

A Conversation with Trevor Schoonmaker

Join us for a conversation with Nasher Senior Curator Trevor Schoonmaker about his work curating the recent Prospect New Orleans art event. Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp is the fourth iteration of the citywide triennial art exhibition and features works by 73 artists spread across 17 venues. Designed to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the founding of La Nouvelle-Orléans/New Orleans, Prospect.4 traces connections to the city and its rich history of migration and cultural exchange through works by artists from North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. Laurent Dubois will moderate the discussion.

Free and open to the public. Light lunch served. Sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
