Help fuel the artistic energy on the High Line this month with our weekly #SolarPanel! Organized in conjunction with High Line Art's curated video series, Solar, on view now at High Line Channel 14, we are facilitating a Q&A session between High Line Art Curator & Director, Cecilia Alemani, and the artists – Rosa Barba, Camille Henrot, Basim Magdy, and Neïl Beloufa – over High Line Art's Twitter account, @HighLineArtNYC. The Twitter conversations will occur in four installments, featuring one artist per week. The artists’ fascinating answers will offer a unique perspective into the inspiration, process, and themes manifest in their work. The following day, we will post the full interviews (packed with even more juicy information) on the High Line Art's Tumblr blog.

Read more after the break.

Our first Q&A will debut with Rosa Barba next Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 2:00 PM EST on Twitter. Tune in for a stellar interview!

The videos featured in Solar spotlight the effect of humans on the environment through both realistic and futuristic narratives and emphasize the importance of environmental activism in the arts. Solar is presented in conjunction with Marfa Dialogues/NY, a program on climate change science, environmental engagement, and artistic practice presented by Ballroom Marfa, and the Rauschenberg Foundation. Check out more Marfa Dialogues/NY programs here.
