The art just keeps coming on the High Line! Last week High Line Art shared news of their upcoming exhibition, “Busted”; now they have just released their full spring schedule, which includes a new commission by Carol Bove and a performance by Mungo Thompson.
Ms. Bove, according to a release from High Line Art, will stage a work called Caterpillar, “a series of large-scale sculptures [that will] punctuate the wild, untouched landscape of the High Line at the Rail Yards” in May. The piece will remain on view for a year. Mr. Thompson will present a piece performance called Crickets with a chamber orchestra on June 21, to mark the summer solstice.
Also on tap is a video from Superflex, beginning May 7.
Having not been up to the High Line in a few weeks, I didn’t realize that Guido Van der Werve’s Nummer negen, the day I didn’t turn with the world (2007), a stop-motion video that shows the artist at the North Pole, turning with the world for a full day, went on view in the High Line’s Channel 14 space, above West 14th Street, on March 11. (An excerpt of that film follows below.)
