Accompanying the international triennial Prospect New Orleans, this book features work by 73 artists and arts collectives illustrating transcultural connections through contemporary art. The fourth iteration Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, evokes New Orleans's natural environment-surrounded by bayous, lakes and wetlands near the mouth of the Mississippi River-and alludes to the city's unique cultural landscape as a creative force. By positioning itself in the city of New Orleans, the Prospect triennial aims to echo the city's history of cross-cultural fertilization. From Creole culture to jazz, in waves of migration and colonization, and as the American South's largest port, New Orleans is truly a cultural and historic nexus. Prospect.4 relies on New Orleans's richly hybrid character to offer a diverse and exhilarating panoply of new and exciting art. Contributors include Trevor Schoonmaker, William Cordova, Miranda Lash, Omar Lopez-Chahoud, Wangechi Mutu, Filipa Oliveira, Ebony G. Patterson, Ylva Rouse, Ned Sublette, Zoe Whitley, with additional contributions from more than 40 local, national, and international curators and writers.
