Prospect New Orleans is a citywide contemporary-art triennial that was conceived in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Emphasizing collaborative partnerships and site-specificity, Prospect presents artwork by local, national, and international artists in both traditional and highly unexpected environments. In the next iteration of this major exhibition, titled Yesterday we said tomorrow, star curators Naima Keith and Diana Nawi bring together fifty artists to engage New Orleans as context as they reconsider the concept of history, both global and local. Through many artistic strategies, architectural interventions and public activations, the exhibition explores current social and political conditions that ask for a reconsideration of the past. The accompanying catalog -- a rich collection of contributions from curators, poets, artists, and cultural critics -- considers several key themes that animate the ambitious artist projects: landscape and history; seeing and documentation; ritual and performance; intimacy and domesticity. In addition to several essays, each of the fifty artists included in the show will have entries describing their practice and the work in the show.
