The High Line, New York City, 08/25/19 - 08/25/19

Exhibition: Simone Leigh: Brick House

For the inaugural High Line Plinth, centered on the Spur and the newly opened terminus of the High Line public space on Manhattan’s West Side, Simone Leigh presents Brick House, a sixteen-foot-tall bronze bust of a Black woman, whose torso is conflated with the forms of a skirt and a clay house. The sculpture references numerous architectural styles from Africa and the southern US, informing both formal elements of the work and its conceptual framework.
