Prospect.3 director Brooke Davis Anderson and curator Franklin Sirmans announced the 61 artists whose work will be featured in the event.

Franklin Sirmans, the Terri and Michael Smooke Department Head and Curator of Contemporary Art at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), is serving as the Artistic Director for “Prospect.3: Notes for Now.” The three-month exhibition will showcase the work of more than 50 leading and emerging contemporary artists from around the globe. Founded on the principle that art engenders social progress, the biennial and all related events will be free and open to the public.

Each artist will be offered a dedicated space to exhibit at one of over 15 venues, with a number of artists commissioned to produce site-specific projects. Many projects engage in some way with the Crescent City’s unique culture, and offer distinctive interpretations of the city, both past and present.
