New Orleans’ Prospect biennial, which is now in its third iteration and has never actually been held biennially, has been “officially” changed to a triennial, according to the festival’s board of directors. The fourth edition will be held in 2017. “Board leaders are confident that this transition from a biennial to a scheduled triennial will allow Prospect New Orleans to reach its full potential as a leading international art exhibition,” a press release said today.
Brooke Davis Anderson, Prospect’s executive director, said in a statement, referring to the citywide exhibition’s frequent delays in programming since its start in 2008, “Prospect New Orleans has, in essence, been a ‘triennial’ all along so it seems right to embrace the rhythm we know we can implement successfully.”
“Prospect.3: Notes for Now” in on view in New Orleans through January 25 and it’s great.
