EAI was pleased to collaborate with High Line Art, a program of Friends of the High Line, to present Gordon Matta-Clark's 1976 City Slivers on the High Line, New York City's acclaimed elevated public park. The presentation of Matta-Clark's City Slivers launched High Line Channel, a new outdoor video program featuring daily screenings. City Slivers was originally created by Matta-Clark for projection on the exterior façade of the Municipal Building in Lower Manhattan. The piece is an ode to New York City's landscape and a dynamic formal investigation of the city's urban architecture.
City Slivers was projected on a building to the east of the High Line at West 22nd Street, where it was visible from the park's Seating Steps, as well as the sidewalk on West 22nd Street—less than a block from EAI.
