Our links have been fixed (sorry, dear readers!) and we are ready for more Prospect.3 goodness this Halloween weekend. Unsurprisingly, the Bywater is filled with Prospect.3 galleries and events, including the ever-changing street art mural Impermanence at its border on Burgundy and Press St. After the jump, we list eleven galleries to visit this weekend and beyond. Happy prospecting (that is what you call it when you attend Prospect.3 galleries, right?) and happy Halloween!Read More
Exploring Prospect.3 In The Bywater: Eleven Galleries to See
Atemporal Macramé (Kitschy Kitschy Cuckoo)
When your first Prospect.3 event elicits absolute awe and zero photos due to distraction by the art itself, you're probably doing something right. So goes Atemporal Macramé (Kitschy Kitschy Cuckoo) at 723 Louisa Street Digest. Open all of Prospect.3 with coffee served Monday mornings from 10am-12pm, Digest not only brings you art but a communal atmosphere in which to enjoy it. Potluck Brunches with full showings of works by collective the Crypto-Data Actualists of the Amphibidiculous Dusk will take place November 9th, December 14th, and January 11th from 11am to 3pm.
Art collective Aquarium Studios knows how to serve it up sweet at their Bywater gallery. Their Condensed Milk exhibit, running Saturdays in November from noon to 5pm and by appointment offers up the kind of playful, saccharine works from its members that have even prompted Shake Sugary to sell pies during their Prospect 3 run.
Good Children Gallery
Good Children Gallery's "Crowning Glory" celebrates the focused energy of its artists as they explore the many facets of the building in which they're showing. That exhibit runs from now until January 4th, with weekend hours running Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5pm. Shortly after this exhibit ends, Stephen Collier's "The Pigeons in This Town Taste Like Shit" will be just starting up. Collier's visceral, visual artistry uses the versatile mediums of drawing, sculpture, and video to paint a picture of the leisure class at their worst.
Impermanence delves into the vibrant street art scene of New Orleans with artists working alongside each other and in conjunction with other Prospect.3 works. As with any outdoor mural, the piece is on display perpetually, but be on the lookout for a time lapse of Impermanence and its ever-changing facade.
New Orleans Community Print Shop
New Orleans Community Printshop's anachronistic exhibit pushes the boundaries of its analog gear and melds it with the digital. Members' works will be on display throughout Prospect.3 Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm to 10pm, Saturdays from 10am to 2pm and by appointment. December 13th through January 3rd sees the addition of a portraiture exhibit of rural landscapes in their own rural prints — via tintypes and other oft-neglected means. A brief exhibit January 10th through Prospect.3's last day of the 25th takes viewers through the creative process via a collaborative effort with printmakers Julian Wellisz and Cora Lautze as well as artists as they decide on the best means to get their work out there.
P.3+ at the Parlor
Art experts and all-around movers and shakers Karen Louise Crain and Oliver Manhattan present some of their favorite local artists with all new works at the Parlor on St Claude. The instantly recognizable artists include Laurel Porcari, Epaul Julien, and Alex Podesta, whose bunny men can be seen all over town. P.3+ at the Parlor runs all of Prospect.3 every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5pm.
Press Street's Antenna Gallery
Press Street's Antenna Gallery has a plethora of events to enjoy throughout Prospect.3. Their Second Saturday shows include participation in the 9th annual 24 hour Draw-a-Thon at the Marigny Opera House starting at 6am November 29th at 725 St Ferdinand St. Fresh Monthly showings include Brad Benischek's apocalyptic "Nocturnal Emissions", running from November 8th to December 7th, and the collaborative Team Draw Activate! running December 13th through January 4th. Their Prospect.3 showings conclude with Welcome to My Homepage, a celebration of the beginnings of the internet and the personal webpage (sup, angelfire?) running January 10th through January 28th. The gallery will be open all of Prospect.3, Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 5pm, though they suggest you call ahead for additional weekday hours.
The building blocks of art, dance, and collaboration viscerally come together for Dancing Grounds' Terratour, on display all of Prospect.3 with hours Monday through Friday from 6pm to 9pm and Saturdays from 9am to 3pm. New Orleans Society of Fly Ladies will be designing the interior of these blocks and dancers and choreographers will further that theme through movement. Audience participation is highly encouraged. Move the blocks and transform the performance.
The Chapel of the Almighty Dollar
The Chapel of the Almighty Dollar isn't some illuminati nod, (or is it?) but rather the commentary that money provides at every juncture and in every transaction. This outdoor pyramid is filled with bill messages of the conflict we encounter in a currency-driven society. The Dan Tague sculpture will be on display all of Prospect.3 Wednesdays through Sunday 11am to 4pm as well as by appointment.
Artist collective slash nonprof gallery the Front is simply overflowing with gorgeous, versatile pieces. All 18 artists' works will be on display as well as special programming, including a collaborative show with Photo NOLA in November, a three artist solo work show for members Edna Lanieri, Jessie Vogel, and Cristina Molina in December, and a very special exchange with Austin's Mass Art Gallery to kick off the new year in January. The Front is open all of Prospect.3, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5pm as well as by appointment.
With Light, With Love
A circa 1830s corner store, the Tigermen Den is both beautifully restored and teeming with impeccable shows from across the spectrum. Their Prospect.3 offerings including works by Veronica Cross, Caroline Yes, and others running now until December 6th as well as an outdoor installation that is being displayed throughout the
biennialtriennial. December 13th through January 25th sees a new crop of artists emerge at the space, including Nina Nichols, Joy Patterson, and Magda Boreysza. The Tigermen Den is open every Saturday for Prospect.3 from 1pm to 5pm.
