Like the lotus, which blooms from the murky depths of the swamp, New Orleans is a thing of improbable beauty.

That, at least, is the guiding metaphor behind Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, a citywide art spectacular that will open Nov. 18 and run through February.

“It’s from a quote by saxophonist Archie Shepp, who described jazz as a lily that grows in spite of the swamp,” P.4 artistic director Trevor Schoonmaker said Tuesday at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, announcing the framework and artist lineup for the exhibition.

“When I first came across (the quotation) I thought it was the perfect metaphor for the exhibition,” said Schoonmaker. “Art helps bring the invisible to light.”

Now held once every three years, Prospect debuted in 2008. On Tuesday, Schoonmaker and Prospect New Orleans interim director Ylva Rouse outlined some key facts about the upcoming exhibition.

With 73 artists from North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Europe represented, P.4 will be considerably larger than the last installment, which opened in 2014.
