Exhibition Showcasing Maquettes of the Finalists of the High Line Plinth Proposals Now on Display

Two of the 12 artist visions on display will be produced as full-scale monumental sculptures that will be displayed on the High Line in 2022 and 2024

Temporary Exhibition on display through April 2021

High Line Art presents a temporary exhibition of the twelve shortlisted proposals for the third and fourth High Line Plinth commissions, currently on view as sculptural maquettes. The models are exhibited on the High Line in the Coach Passage at 30th Street and will remain on display through April 2021. The presented works are from artists Iván Argote, Nina Beier, Margarita Cabrera, Nick Cave, Banu Cennetoğlu, Rafa Esparza, Teresita Fernández, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lu Pingyuan, Pamela Rosenkranz, Mary Sibande, and Andra Ursuţa.

The High Line Plinth, a landmark destination for public art, was designed as the focal point of the newest section of the High Line, the Spur, which opened in June 2019. Two out of the 12 shortlisted artists will be selected to create the full-scale third and fourth High Line Plinth commissions, to be installed in 2022 and 2024 respectively. Simone Leigh’s Brick House, the first Plinth commission, is currently on view until spring 2021. Each sculpture will be on view for 18 months.

The maquettes, presented at approximately 1:16 scale, offer the public a three-dimensional perspective of the proposals. They range in material, from adobe brick soil to dichroic glass

panes, suggesting the varying impact and challenges of their construction at full-size. Evoking themes that include climate change, decolonization, and civil rights, these proposals present 12 artists’ visions for monumental public art for the 21st century.

The models are exhibited a short distance away from the Plinth, where Simone Leigh’s Brick House is currently on view.
