About

Founded in 2008 by Dan Cameron, Prospect New Orleans is the largest biennial of international contemporary art in the United States. Conceived in the tradition of the great international biennials, such as the Venice Biennale and the Bienal de São Paulo, Prospect New Orleans showcases new artistic practices from around the world and contributes to the revitalization of New Orleans by spurring tourism and bringing international attention to the city’s vibrant visual arts community. Prospect.2, the second iteration of the contemporary art biennial, which is curated by Dan Cameron, will open to the public on November 5, 2011, and will be on view until Sunday, February 3, 2012. Prospect.2 is organized under the auspices of U.S. Biennial, Inc., a nonprofit organization based in New York with offices in New Orleans. U.S. Biennial, Inc., was launched in January 2007, and its first project was Prospect.1. Read more about Dan Cameron, the founder and curator for both Prospect.1 and Prospect.2, below.
