NEW ORLEANS, LA.- U.S. Biennial, Inc., the organization that produces Prospect New Orleans, announced today the new dates for the biennial, which was previously scheduled to open in November 2010. Due in large part to the current economic conditions and decreases in funding for the arts nationally, U.S. Biennial has elected to postpone Prospect.2, the second iteration of one of the United States’ largest biennials of international contemporary art, by one year. The biennial is now scheduled to be on view November 5, 2011 through February 3, 2012.

According to Dan Cameron, Founding Director for U.S. Biennial and Artistic Director for Prospect New Orleans, “We have fallen behind schedule in meeting our fundraising goals. Realizing that going forward would put a strain on the organization and our partners in the community, we have decided to focus our efforts in 2010 toward developing a strong financial footing that will allow us to fully realize our ambitions for Prospect.2 in 2011.”

Despite the new date, other details and plans for the biennial remain largely unchanged. Prospect.2 will present the work of some 60 local, national, and international artists from more than 20 countries and with diverse cultural, generational and artistic backgrounds. Many of the world’s most promising and/or recognized artists are developing major new projects to be premiered in both individual and group exhibitions in some 20 sites throughout the city.

In addition, Prospect New Orleans will remain active in the New Orleans community over the course of the next 18 months, presenting programs, soloexhibitions, and other art-related events in cooperation with future venue partners as well as other local institutions and organizations.
