Prospect.3 New Orleans Pushed Back to 2014
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Prospect.3 New Orleans, the third in a series of international art exhibits, has been officially postponed from 2013 until fall 2014.
The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/I2zTi4 ) consulting director Jane Farver says the later date will steer P.3 clear of competition with other international art exhibitions in Venice, Istanbul and Pittsburgh in 2013.
She says the extra year also will allow Prospect to better "regroup and rebuild" before pushing on.
Prospect.1, staged in 2008, included installations relating to the post-flood recovery of New Orleans by 80 artists. The inaugural show was a critical success but ended $900,000 in debt. With 25 artists, 2011's Prospect.2 was a more modest exhibit that had its highlights, but left some pining for the much grander exhibits of P.1.
Farver says Prospect.3 will have about 50 artists.
