Prospect.1 New Orleans

hefler_1

We are absolutely running behind on this. Haven’t even made it down there for a glimpse. Prospect.1 New Orleans claims to be the largest international contemporary art biennial ever organized in the US.  Like all good art biennials, venues are located throughout the city. Word is, building some of those yawning exhibition halls wasn’t in the budget and the result is a series of about 25 intimate settings. The exhibit is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 11 am-6 pm, until Sunday, January 18th.  Complimentary shuttle service leaves from the W Hotel (333 Poydras, map) every 30 minutes or so. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Be on the lookout as Cabinet of Seeds reports.

If you get the art coma, we recommend reviving at El Gato Negro, 81 French Market Place, 504.525.9752, just behind the US Mint, a Prospect.1 venue.
