Various artists on the Prospect.4 Triennial in New Orleans

Four Goodman artists – Alfredo Jaar, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Paulo Nazareth and Hank Willis Thomas – will participate in the Prospect.4 Triennial, titled The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, in New Orleans (18 November – 25 February). Artworks commissioned for Prospect.4 will address themes of identity, displacement and cultural hybridity. Curated by Trevor Schoonmaker, the triennial acts like a citywide exhibition and is staged at 17 venues around New Orleans, with an emphasis on the Mississippi River waterfront.

Paulo Nazareth at the University of Illinois’ Gallery 400

Nazareth is one of a select group of artists invited to exhibit on the group exhibition Traduttore, Traditore at Gallery 400, which forms part of the University of Illinois’ College of Architecture and the Arts in Chicago (3 November – 16 December). Curated by Karen Greenwalt and Katja Rivera, the artworks on display represent a diverse group of artists from around the world who employ processes of translation to expose, question, and challenge global circuits of economic and cultural capital. Taken from the Italian aphorism that roughly translates to “translator, traitor”, the title of the show speaks to the misunderstandings, losses, and fragmentation that manifest during this process of exchange. Ultimately, the exhibition considers how artists navigate and expose issues of difference, and proposes translation as a method by which to understand contemporary artistic practices.
