High Line Art Performance: Alison Knowles, 'Make a Salad'


Fluxus artist Alison Knowles, in collaboration with Jessica Higgins and Joshua Selman, restages Make a Salad, an iconic event originally performed in 1962. The artist chops lettuce and other vegetables to the beat of live music, and then produces a giant salad by tossing the ingredients together in a grand gesture.

The audience is invited to take part in the action by eating the finished salad.
