Paola Pivi on the High Line Billboard, NYCJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 18 Dec 2012
The 25-by-75-foot billboard located in a parking lot next to the High Line Parkl in New York has hosted an all-star list of artists including Joel Sternfeld, John Baldessari, David Shrigley, Elad Lassry, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari of Toilet Paper, and others since its inception in December 2011. Italian artist, Paola Pivi joins this list as the most recent artist to have her work shown on the massive canvas.
Her dreamlike image of two zebras in a snowy landscape under a cloudless sky sits oddly against the sprawling landscape of Manhattan. It’s perfect! To check out the billboard in person go down to West 18th Street at 10th Avenue in Manhattan to view it 24 hours a day. Pivi’s billboard will be up through Wednesday, January 2, 2013.
