Summary

The most comprehensive and up-to-date book about the vibrant public art program of New York’s global destination, the High Line

The High Line, New York City’s famed elevated rail line-turned-greenway, hosts millions of visitors annually, providing a unique space for encountering art and performance. Elevated surveys the rich, multifaceted offerings of its public art program, High Line Art, presenting works and projects from the last decade by key artists from around the world. 

The book features a world-class array of projects by artists including Simone Leigh, Paola Pivi, Sam Durant, Jordan Casteel, Cecilia Vicuña, Sheila Hicks, El Anatsui, Phyllida Barlow, Faith Ringgold, Barbara Kruger, Zoe Leonard, and many others. It documents the creative evolution and vibrant cultural programming of High Line Art, which offers a city-scale canvas for artists and performers to interact with, seen in abundant photographs that chronicle the projects across the passage of seasons in the park. 

Through voluminous photographs and unique conversations with the participating artists, as well as essays by key critics such as Julia Bryan-Wilson and Aruna D’Souza, this book surveys the dozens of open-air installations, billboards, murals, video projects, and participatory events that demonstrate the unique and vibrant impact High Line Art has had on both New York City and the art world.
