Tau Lewis is included in 'Yesterday we said tomorrow: Prospect 5. Triennial New Orleans'
Prospect New Orleans is a citywide contemporary art triennial and the only exhibition of its kind in the US with a decade-long history. 'Yesterday we said tomorrow', curated by Artistic Directors Naima J. Keith and Diana Nawi, is the triennial's fifth iteration. This edition will feature more than fifty artists in over fifteen venues throughout New Orleans and will include newly commissioned works alongside the work of historically significant artists. P.5 will investigate how history informs the present––particularly in relation to New Orleans, a uniquely American city that embodies so many urgent issues of today, but which remains deeply invested in and subject to its recent and historical past. Taking the city as a mandate, this exhibition will examine history as both document and fiction, exploring the idea that our moment feels both unprecedented and familiar.
