P.3 Reads with Jeffrey Gibson

May 20th, 2014
5:00 - 6:00 PM

Location
New Orleans Public Library, Latter Branch
5120 St. Charles Ave.

P.3Reads, a Prospect New Orleans Public Program, is inspired by Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans‘€™ vision for Prospect.3 (P.3). The program takes place monthly in different NOPL branches. Artists that will be showing their work in the upcoming P.3 Biennial discuss the books that have been important in their lives and work, in conversation with members from the New Orleans community.

On this occasion, Edith Wolfe, of the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University, will engage artist Jeffrey Gibson, in an open and participatory discussion about the influential Manifesto Antropófago (Cannibalist Manifesto). Published in 1928 in Brazil and written in a satirical and Dadaist spirit, Andrade‘€™s essay became in its time the call to artists and poets on the American continent to repudiate European colonialism, embrace their Native American and African ancestry and cannibalize all foreign influences in order to reach the Modernist dream of their true and unique identity.

P.3Reads is generously supported by Henry M. Lambert and R. Carey Bond, with additional funding provided by the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Edward Wisner Donation Fund/City of New Orleans, and the National Council of Jewish Women, Greater New Orleans Section.
