Prospect New Orleans Executive Director Brooke Davis Anderson to step down; Board appoints longtime deputy director for curatorial affairs to interim role After four years of leadership, Anderson departs in advance of Prospect.4 triennial to direct the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

NEW ORLEANS, La. - March 16, 2017Prospect New Orleans announced today that Executive Director Brooke Davis Anderson will leave her post at the end of the month after four years of leading the organization that produces the Prospect triennial. Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs Ylva Rouse will serve as interim director while a search committee formed by the board of directors seeks Anderson’s permanent replacement to head the New Orleans-based organization. Rouse, a New Orleans native, has served on the curatorial team of Prospect since its inception in April of 2007. Prior to her tenure at Prospect, Rouse served as Director of the Javier Lopez Gallery Artspace in Madrid, Spain and as an Exhibitions Curator at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.

“Prospect New Orleans continues to grow into one of the most important contemporary art exhibitions in the United States,” said Prospect New Orleans Board President Susan Brennan. “We are grateful to Brooke for her dedication to that shared vision and we wish her the best of luck in her new role. Ylva Rouse has been an unparalleled asset to Prospect since its inception and we know she will manage a seamless transition of leadership as we continue the important work of producing the international triennial that opens in November.”

The last edition of Prospect New Orleans’ triennial, Prospect.3: Notes for Now, was a critical and popular success, engaging over 100,000 visitors and ending its thirteen-week run with a budgetary surplus. After Prospect.3 the organization transitioned from a biennial to triennial schedule and added six new Board members in New Orleans and New York City. Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp will open this November in New Orleans. Participating artists selected by Artistic Director Trevor Schoonmaker from a global survey of more than twenty-five countries will be announced this May.

"What an extraordinary opportunity it has been to lead Prospect New Orleans for the last four years,” said Brooke Davis Anderson. “I have given all of my time and energy to PNO and what I will cherish most about this fulfilling and gratifying experience, are the relationships with our devoted board, hardworking staff, countless partners, and numerous supporters in the singular city of New Orleans and beyond."

THE CLOCK by Christian Marclay comes to New Orleans!

Prospect New Orleans presents Christian Marclay’s Internationally Acclaimed 24-hour video installation The Clock at The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans

From November 10 through December 4, 2016, Prospect New Orleans will present the Southern premiere of The Clock, a major work by artist Christian Marclay, in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (900 Camp Street).

Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, The Clock samples thousands of film excerpts from the history of cinema that indicate the passage of time—from clock towers to wristwatches to buzzing alarm clocks—that edited together unfold on the screen in real time as a 24-hour montage.

“The Clock is an extraordinary experience and a masterful artwork. Through the history of film and the passage of time, this video tells our shared stories and documents our collective experiences. The community spirit the artwork creates is so vivid—New Orleans is the perfect city to host its Southern premiere! 

-Brooke Davis Anderson, Executive Director, Prospect New Orleans

The Clock will be screened for free in the Contemporary Arts Center’s first floor gallery from November 10—December 4, Tuesday—Sunday, 11 am – 5 pm; and runs continuously day and night on the weekends of November 18  and November 25 from Friday, 5pm through Sunday, 5pm. As seating is limited, admission to the installation will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, with no time limits for viewers. For a full schedule and live updates on visiting The Clock, visit ProspectNewOrleans.org and Prospect’s Twitter account, @Prospect_NOLA.

Never before exhibited in the South, The Clock is a cinematic tour de force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. Appropriated from the last 100 years of cinema’s rich history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often by displaying a watch or clock. From the legendary to the obscure, The Clock incorporates scenes of car chases, board rooms, emergency wards, bank heists, trysts, high noon shootouts, detective dramas, and silent comedies.

About Christian Marclay

Christian Marclay has exhibited his work for more than three decades in museums around the world. His 2003 retrospective, which originated at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, traveled to other North American institutions as well as venues in France, Switzerland and Great Britain. The touring exhibition Replay, focusing on his video work, originated at the Cité de la Musique, Paris, in 2007 and was presented at DHC/ART in Montreal (2008). In 2010, the Whitney Museum of American Art organized Festival, a one-person exhibition organized around Marclay’s “graphic scores”—visual works to be interpreted by musicians. As a pioneering turntablist, performing and recording music since 1979, Marclay made a significant impact on the new music scene. He has performed internationally, alone or in collaboration with musicians John Zorn, Zeena Parkins, Lawrence Butch Morris, Christian Wolff, Shelley Hirsch, Günter Müller, the Kronos Quartet, Sonic Youth, and many others.

 The Clock is presented by Prospect New Orleans in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans.

The premiere presentation of The Clock in New Orleans is made possible by generous support from Whitney Bank, the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Ralph and Susan Brennan, and an Anonymous gift.  Technical production by Solomon Group, New Orleans.

P.4 will feature more than fifty artists selected by Artistic Director Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. The exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, November 11, 2017 and run through February 25, 2018 aligning with the City of New Orleans’s Tricentennial celebration. The last edition of Prospect New Orleans’s triennial, Prospect.3: Notes for Now, took place from October 25, 2014 to January 25, 2015 featuring fifty-eight artists selected by Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans and engaging over 100,000 visitors during its thirteen-week run.
