Biennials abound. Prospect postpones.
Prospect 3 New Orleans is now scheduled for the fall of 2014, bumped up from 2013.
Prospect consulting director and former MIT List Visual Art Center director Jane Farver told the Times-Picayune that the exhibition was rescheduled so it doesn’t coincide with the biennials slated for Venice, Istanbul, and the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh.
A few days ago, after having a couple discussions about art fairs and reading on imaginings of a Chicago Biennial, I imagined, briefly, what it’d be like for Boston to hold a biennial on the scale of Prospect. It seems, however, that it’s a tough business to run a biennial, especially considering Prospect’s reception and the folks running it - and (moreover) the art world’s saturated with large international events.
But it’s still worth a shot, no?
