Due to damage caused by Hurricane Ida and the resulting recovery in its aftermath, Prospect New Orleans announced that it will be changing the dates for this year's city wide art exhibition.
Prospect New Orleans's 2021 iteration, officially titled Prospect.5: Yesterday we said tomorrow, will now be from late October to mid-November, with exhibitions remaining on view until January 23, 2022. Prospect.5's opening festivities and gala have been postponed until January 2022.
"Prospect is making these decisions in consideration of the artists, staff, framers, fabricators, art handlers, builders, and other art workers that will help us produce a successful Prospect," Nick Stillman, executive director of Prospect New Orleans, said. "Despite the challenges of the Delta variant and Hurricane Ida, we are committed to realizing this exhibition, and I hope our colleagues, friends, and patrons will visit Prospect, especially during our closing events. New Orleans needs support at this moment."
The beginning of Prospect.5's openings will start on October 23. Prospect New Orleans anticipates that all projects should be up and open to the public by November 13. The artist list and curatorial framework is remaining unchanged. To see the full list of artists who are participating in this year's Prospect.5, visit prospectneworleans.org/p5-artist-list.
