Prospect.5: Yesterday We Said Tomorrow
Now-January 23, 2022
This Fall, museums, cultural spaces, and public sites throughout New Orleans will host the long-awaited return of Prospect New Orleans Triennial exhibition with Prospect.5: “Yesterday we said tomorrow.” The CAC’s first and second-floor galleries will feature exciting works by 17 leading contemporary artists from around the world.
Curated by Artistic Directors Naima J. Keith and Diana Nawi, Prospect.5: Yesterday we said tomorrow is the fifth edition of Prospect New Orleans, a citywide art exhibition. Inspired by New Orleans jazz musician Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah’s 2010 album Yesterday You Said Tomorrow, the title of the exhibition centers the unspoken present, the place where past and future come together, and where other courses of action become possible. The exhibition title also implies the deferral of meaningful change, which often comes slowly or not at all. The artists and ideas that define this exhibition confront this truth, and the stark realities of history, but also suggest that we might yet plot a different future.
