Ashley Tickle, the former flack for Performa, has jumped to another of the city’s fun and weird art institutions. Ms. Tickle will now head publicity for High Line Art, the organization responsible for the curation of the elevated park, and a part of the broader Friends of the High Line, which manages the park at large.

“We are so excited to welcome Ashley to Friends of the High Line: she is bringing with her a great experience developed at Performa and Dia and a wonderful passion and commitment for art,” said Cecilia Alemani, Donald R. Mullen Jr. Curator and Director of High Line Art, via e-mail.

Ms. Tickle’s appointment marks the end of her one-and-a-half years with the performance biennial. Before that she spent four years with the Dia Art Foundation.

“I am thrilled to be joining Friends of the High Line and working closely with Cecilia Alemani on High Line Art,” Ms. Tickle said in an e-mail. “She has an amazing vision and I am excited to be a part of what she is creating.”

Correction 12:07 p.m. An earlier version of this story said Ms. Tickle will head publicity at Friends of the High Line. Her new position is actually with High Line Art.
