Prospect Capital

P.3 Announces Schedule for Final Week

The third time was the charm for Prospect New Orleans. P.3: Notes for Now was lauded by audiences and critics alike as the iteration of the art expo that finally got it right. Still, all good things must come to an end. Today (1.13), Prospect announced the schedule for the triennial’s final week.

Prospect Hits Gold, Switches to Triennial Format

The third time’s a charm. New Orleans art festival Prospect took a few runs before finding their pace, but the success of Prospect.3: Notes for Now has been indisputable and the organization is adjusting to reflect the lessons learned. Prospect New Orleans will now be a triennial.

Today in Nola 11.22.14

It’s the second to last night of Fringe Fest, which has been rolling through indie theatres since Wednesday (Nov 19). Prospect 3 events continue today. A special second opening of the popular street art gallery Exhibit BE gives the public another chance to catch this building transformed into an amazing 5 story work of art. Rachelle Thomas and Steven Kennedy discuss Blight and property acquisition at the Treme Market Branch as part of P.3 and an effort to restore the historic building. Today, John F. Kennedy was assassinated and famous Mafia Man Carlos Marcell was acquitted in his deportation case.

Presenting Exhibit BE

By Ashley Rouen

On November 23rd 2006, over 100 families were evicted from an Algiers apartment complex, just a few days before Thanksgiving. In the years immediately following, the building housed both crime and squatters. Lately though, it has been the site for a massive graffiti art installation, Exhibit BE, initiated by local street artist Brandan Odums. Exhibit BE was only open to the public last Saturday (11.15) from 11a.m.-4p.m. The exterior now covered by colorful graffiti art can still be seen from the street located at the intersection of Sandra Dr. and Murl St. on the West Bank. 

R.1 (Not P.3) Art Installation Appears at French Quarter Collapse Site

Updated 11.16, 8:16p.m.

For weeks, the city has been saturated with the distinctive pink P.3 logo of the Prospect 3 art biennial. One street artist has taken to mimicking the campaign with a rectangular pink “R.1” tag wheat-pasted around downtown. On Friday (11.14) night, the unknown artist took the public installations one step forward installing a large piece at the scene of a collapsed building in the French Quarter. Muriel's Jackson Square identifies the artist as Reggie Ford. NoDef is verifying.

Airlift Transforms Church for Nels Cline & Rob Cambre

St. Maurice Church in the Lower Ninth Ward has recently undergone a strange transformation. The formerly abandoned space is now home to Taylor Shepherd’s “Altarpiece” in anticipation of an upcoming Space Rites segment featuring a performance with Nels Cline of Wilco and local guitarist Rob Cambre. The altar installation is made of about 30 or so analog televisions donated by Goodwill and rewired to interpret sound. Saturday’s show marks Airlift’s second concert in collaboration with Creative Alliance of New Orleans (CANO), who now manages the property and has linked up with Prospect 3 to expose the charm of the church to the community.  

P.3 Takes to Two Wheels with Bicycle Tours

By Ashley Roeun

P.3 is blowing up all over the Crescent City. Given all the hype, it's hard to sort out where to start and what to see. That's why Prospect is employing New Orleans' new favorite mode of transit this weekend. The bicycle is getting artsy.

Wilco's Nels Cline Airlifted to NOLA

Airlift has not been shy about art, music, installations or celebrities. In 2011, the art group even had Andrew WK party at their interactive musical village in the Bywater. Now, they are bringing Wilco's Nels Cline to play a new hybrid installation on Saturday (11.15).
