Edie Wolfe Presents with Prospect New Orleans' P.3 Reads Program

June 12th, 2014

Edith Wolfe, Assistant Director for Undergraduate Programs at the Stone Center, presented with the Prospect New Orleans’ P.3 Reads Program on May 20th.

Wolfe, an art historian, and Jeffrey Gibson, a New York-based artist who creates geometric abstract paintings and sculpture that draw on both Native American and modernist influences, discussed Brazilian artist Oswald de Andrade’s “Cannibalist Manifesto.” Andrade was one of the founders of Brazil’s modernist movement and his manifesto dealt with the ways in which artists were using Brazilian indigenous culture and traditions to react to European post-colonial cultural domination.

P.3 Reads is a program where artists explore written works which influence their art at public libraries around the city. For more information on this program, and other Prospect New Orleans programs please visit their website.
