Renata Lucas

The Monument Project

Renata Lucas (b. 1971, Ribeirão Preto, Brazil; lives in São Paulo, Brazil)

The Monument Project converts the plinth into a platform accessible to people. Inscribed on the facades of surrounding buildings is the phrase “there was a project of a city here,” so that the entire sentence, in its flat, linear format, can only be read from the privileged point of view of someone positioned at the top of the plinth.


Major support for the High Line Plinth is provided by members of the High Line Plinth Committee and contemporary art leaders committed to realizing major commissions and engaging in the public success of the Plinth. Learn more about the High Line Plinth Committee.
