High Line Art: Francis Cape, The Other End of the Line

Enlarge

On Friday, October 22, 2010, Friends of the High Line will debut Francis Cape's The Other End of the Line, a major public art installation addressing the connections and differences between the cultures of upstate New York and New York City.


Inspired by the High Line's history transporting goods from upstate New York into New York City, Francis Cape will transport a previously-occupied residential trailer from Sullivan County, NY to Gansevoort Plaza under the High Line. The trailer's interior will serve as an exhibition space featuring artworks from the thriving upstate New York art community, selected by guest curator Ian Berry.

Join Friends of the High Line in celebrating the debut of The Other End of the Line at the opening reception, followed by public talk and discussion with the artist, on Friday, October 22 at 6:30 PM. Visit our Event Calendar to learn more.
