Prospect.3: Notes for Now (P.3) is an international contemporary art biennial. P.3 will feature the work of 58 artists selected by Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans in 18 venues located throughout New Orleans.

Prospect New Orleans was conceived in the tradition of the great international exhibitions, such as the Venice Biennale and the Bienal de São Paulo, to showcase new artistic practices from around the world in settings that are both historic and culturally exceptional, and contribute to the cultural economy of New Orleans and the Louisiana Gulf region.
