Prospect.4, the fourth iteration of a New Orleans citywide exhibition that opens opens November 16-19, 2017, has announced its list of 73 participating artists, including three Texan artists. The exhibition, The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, will run through February 25, 2018.

Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator of the Nasher Museum of Contemporary Art at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, picked the participants with help from seven artists: William Cordova, Miranda Lash, Omar Lopez-Chahoud, Wangechi Mutu, Filipa Oliveira, Ebony G. Patterson, and Zoe Whitley. Miranda Lash’s husband posted this summary on Facebook:

This is one killer list of Prospect artists from Trevor Schoonmaker! Of the 73 participating artists, 30 will create new work for the exhibition and a majority live and work outside of traditional art-world hubs. I also can’t help but mention how cool it is that I can spot the fingerprints of Miranda Lash, the only U.S.-based curator on the artistic director’s advisory council, which recommended artists to Trevor and will contribute to the catalogue and public programs. Hope to see you in New Orleans for the opening!
