Congratulations to Naudline Pierre on her inclusion in Prospect.5: Yesterday We Said Tomorrow
Prospect New Orleans
October 24, 2020 – January 24, 2021
Yesterday we said tomorrow, curated by Artistic Directors Naima J. Keith and Diana Nawi, is the fifth iteration of Prospect New Orleans. This citywide contemporary art triennial 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.
Naudline Pierre (b. 1989, Leomister, MA), currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Pierre is an artist-in-residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem from October 2019 - September 2020. The works produced at the residency will be presented at MoMA PS1 in the summer of 2020. She holds an MFA from the New York Academy of Art and a BFA from Andrews University. The artist’s works are in the permanent collection of the Dallas Museum of Art; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham; Pérez Art Museum Miami; and CC Foundation, Shanghai.
