On Saturday the citywide triennial Prospect New Orleans is opening its fourth iteration, Prospect.4, The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp. Featuring work by Ellen Gallagher, Rashid Johnson, Alfredo Jaar, Minerva Cuevas, and Mark Dion, the triennial will celebrate its opening on Friday with a gala honoring Louisiana-born artist Lynda Benglis. Prospect.4 also includes a forthcoming public art installation by Kara Walker, which will be presented and performed in February 2018. Inspired by natural landscape of New Orleans, the exhibition’s title also alludes to the city’s cultural landscape as a creative force—saxophonist Archie Shepp described jazz as a triumph of the human spirit, a lily that grows “in spite of the swamp.” Prospect.4 will run through February 25th, 2018.
