High Line Network staff members lead the next in a series of brown-bag lunchtime reading sessions, featuring texts inspired by Maria Thereza Alves’s A Ballast Flora Garden project for the group exhibition Agora.
The High Line is the only park in New York City with a dedicated multimedia contemporary art program, which we offer to audiences, rain or shine, 365 days a year—all for free. We present works by national and international artists at varying stages of their careers, from emerging voices to those long established. Led by Cecilia Alemani, the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Director & Chief Curator, High Line Art invites artists to engage with the unique architecture, history, and design of the High Line in creative and provocative ways. Through art, we foster a productive dialogue with the surrounding neighborhood and urban landscape.
You can be the first to hear about new and amazing artworks coming to the High Line. Sign up for the High Line Art newsletter.
