    Prospect.1 New Orleans Biennial 2008

    Prospect.1 is New Orlean’s first biennial and the largest-ever international contemporary art show in the United States. Similar in style and scope to Venice, the exhibit consists of site-specific art installations, as well as several galleries in museums and elsewhere in the city devoted to it.

    French Quarter Fest, New Orleans
