Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, the fourth iteration of this citywide exhibition opening November 18, 2017, and running through February 25, 2018, alludes to the city’s unique cultural landscape as a creative force.

Cultural synthesis and syncretism inform many of the central issues explored in Prospect.4. The rich diversity of New Orleans is rooted in a long his-tory of human interactions includ-ing colonization, the transatlantic slave trade, waves of migration and displacement and Gulf Coast trade buoyed by the city’s position as the American South’s largest port. Many artists in P.4 explore related themes, connecting them to contemporary geographies and cultures around the world.

Prospect.4 overlaps with the city of New Orleans’ tricentennial celebration—the three-hundredth anniversar y of the founding of La Nouvelle-Orléans by the French in 1718. Because of this serendipitous intersection, P.4 takes the city’s distinctive character as a point of departure to investigate global concerns, while also directing more of its focus southward, placing greater emphasis on art and artists who engage with the American South and the Global South, particularly those from North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Africa and the European countries that colonized these regions.
