Reflecting Authority
by Paul M. Farber, and Laurie Allen

Reflecting Authority, presented in collaboration with the High Line Network Joint Art Initiative’s New Monuments for New Cities, engaged collaborators and public participants in a research residency aimed at mapping civic process, authority, and authorship at five High Line Network sites: Buffalo Bayou, Houston, Texas; Waller Creek, Austin, Texas; The 606, Chicago, Illinois; The Bentway, Toronto, Ontario; and The High Line, New York, New York.

The Reflecting Authority zine features research findings from a series of local workshops, data visualizations, snippets from our podcast series with artists from the five host cities, and critical essays from Monument Lab.
