    Artists Announced for Prospect 1. Biennial in New Orleans
    Prospect 1., the New Orleans–based biennial set to open November 1, has announced the 81 artists selected to participate in the unorthodox exhibition, which will be spread throughout a variety of sites in the city, including homes wrecked by Hurricane Katrina. The show is billed as the largest biennial of international contemporary art ever organized in the United States, and selected artists hail from all over the world—from Los Angeles to Cairo, Egypt. Ghada Amer, Cai Guo-Qiang, and Fred Tomaselli are among the better-known names. (Artinfo, March 11)
