Independent Curators International and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics collaborate on Trevor Schoonmaker’s first public presentation of Prospect.4, the fourth iteration of Prospect New Orleans’ international art exhibition. Schoonmaker is the Artistic Director of Prospect.4 that continues the organization’s tradition of showcasing the work of artists from around the globe. Taking into consideration the 300th anniversary of New Orleans’s founding and the city’s strategic location on the Gulf of Mexico, Prospect.4 directs its focus southward, placing greater emphasis on art and artists that engage the Global South, specifically from North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and the European powers that colonized this region.
