As part of its mission to support the neighboring communities, Prospect New Orleans has implemented a satellite program, P.3+ Regional, which includes the cities of Hammond, LA; Baton Rouge, LA, Lafayette, LA and Mobile, AL. The program is directed at highlighting and promoting concurrent exhibitions and arts events in these cities throughout the course of the biennial. This outreach to neighboring communities takes advantage of the rich cultural resources of these cities and places their activities in dialogue with the local, national and international artists participating in Prospect.3: Notes for Now.
Prospect New Orleans will be offering Art Excursions via bus to the P.3+ Regional sites in Hammond on January 10, 2015. Details are included below.

Over the course of Prospect.3, our partner organization the Acadiana Center for the Arts will host two exhibitions, “Eco Displacement:Ghosts of the Gulf” and “Trivial Pursuit: Obsession’s Allure. Located in Lafayette, LA, the ACA is a quick two-hour drive from New Orleans and well worth the trip.
Eco-Displacement: Ghosts of the Gulf
October 11 – January 25
Opening reception October 11, 6-9pm
The ACA is pleased to host Brandon Ballengée’sEco-Displacement: Ghosts of the Gulf. This ambitious project will be comprised of a 16 foot aquarium which will function as a free-standing eco-system with dozens of aquatic native Mississippi Basin plants and animals collected with the public and students on field-trips. The Mississippi River is the largest river system in North America and is home to thousands of species of native plants and animals. From the phytoplankton that helps to create the air we breathe, to the fish and shellfish that we eat, we’re connected to the river. It is in hopes that through this project people will recognize that the river is not separate from their daily lives but is integral to the interconnected communities along the shoreline and the surrounding region.
Trivial Pursuits: Obsession’s Allure
October 11 – January 25
Opening reception October 11, 6-9pm
Many artists currently working today fixate on or around an image, idea, passion or even a dilemma. From this fixation there comes an endless amount of information often within very narrow perimeters that inform or guides art making. This fixation can be a powerful force, often a consuming passion that leads to an obsession. In this exhibition of over 15 artist, themes, processes or concepts are taken to a notable extreme. Artists include; Susan Bowers, Ralph Bourque, Troy Dugas, Fred Daspit, Shawne Major, Aaron McNamee, James A. Meaux, Mary Morgan, Stephanie Patton, Mark Ponder, Sam Reveles, Brian St. Cyr, Regina Scully, Alfred J. “AJ” Stahl, and Eric Todd.

Over the course of Prospect.3, our partner organization the Centre for the Living Arts will present,”Pre-Glo”, on view through December 31st, 2014. Located approximately two hours from New Orleans in Mobile, AL, the Centre for the Living Arts is not to be missed.
April 11 – December 31, 2014
Pre-Glo is generously sponsored by Wind Creek Hospitality and Mrs. Arlene Mitchell.
The Main Gallery will feature Mario Ybarra, Jr.’s billboards from The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project, organized by LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division). The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project is a series of artist-produced billboards and activations that will unfold along Interstate 10 Freeway from Florida to California through spring 2015. Using approximately 100 billboards total, 10 artists will create “chapter” groupings along I-10, each a unique interpretive link to the exhibition’s thematic. The billboards will move through and punctuate the landscape by tracing territorial expansion from east to west, along one of the country’s busiest freeways, and will conclude in Los Angeles.
Ybarra Jr. is a visual and performance artist, educator and activist who combines street culture with fine art to produce site-specific urban interventions that often bring to light little-known aspects of a particular location’s cultural history. Ybarra Jr.’s chapter of The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project uses source material from the artist’s ongoing collection of images of what he calls “barrio aesthetics” in Los Angeles. Ybarra Jr. is interested in inserting the daily culture and experience of one city and neighborhood into another, both contrasting and familiar. Ybarra’s billboards, which have been on display in both Mobile and Baldwin counties since January 2014, will be exhibited in PRE-GLO.
The Video Gallery features Global Futures: Pre-Glo, curated by Tom Leeser of the Center for Integrated Media at CalArts. This installation of sound and video blends the Centre’s upcoming theme of globalism with its previous video exhibit, Future Tense – Futures Project. The two themes intersect at the point of representation, a “global futurism” seen through a lens of technological driven data visualizations and the ever-expanding reach of global communication.
This communication is evidenced by the data visualizations from the Spatial Information Design Lab at Columbia University and its director, Laura Kurgan. For the exhibit, video selections of the Lab’s work are projected onto the Centre’s video gallery walls. The video is accompanied by wall text that describes each project. Click here for more information on Spatial Information Design Lab.
The Lab’s complex and compelling data visualizations are contrasted with sound art from four international artists who use electronic music, spoken word and field recordings gathered from around the world. Stephanie Smith recorded the haunting and mysterious sounds of a ship at sea. Tom Leeser captured the sound of Nepalis and Tibetans performing chants while doing “kora,” a daily walking ritual done around the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu. Kristín Pora Haraldsdotti’s exhibits her rare collection of recorded Icelandic folk poems, and Henry Schroy contributed a Brazilian drumming performance from Rio de Janeiro. Each of the sound artists and their recordings are positioned in the gallery as “cardinal points”- describing the compass positions of east, west, north and south.
Global Futures: Pre-Glo is immersive, yet it provides enough space for the viewer to experience a critical distance addressing the paradox of scale within the current global condition. The Spatial Information Design Lab’s projections appear as a visual example of the enormity of publicly gathered global data, while the sound art is heard individually through headphones as an isolated and private refuge.
Global Futures: Pre-Glo participants include:
