Beyond the Frame: Masterclass with Trevor Schoonmaker
Prospect.4, New Orleans
In February 2018, the Beyond the Frame curators travelled to New Orleans to see Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp and to meet with the exhibition’s artistic director Trevor Schoonmaker. During the masterclass, Schoonmaker offered the group deep insight into his wider practice, as well as his experience in curating the exhibition and its relationship to the surrounding city. Alongside Susan Hendricks he offered the group a tour of one of the exhibition sites, the Contemporary Art Centre of New Orleans, and provided a contextualised description of the ways in which he approached the triennial’s various locations. During the trip Kara Walker launched a new commission for the exhibition entitled The Katastwóf Karavan at the city’s Algiers Point, which the group was also able to attend.
