Out of Line: Blood Fountain by A.R.M.

Wednesday, August 14 & Thursday, August 15
8 – 9pm
On the High Line at the Spur at 30th Street and 10th Avenue

A feverish choral arrangement of amplified voices emanates from a sculpture not of marble, but of flowing red water. In A.R.M.’s anti-monument, non-memorial performance Blood Fountain, vocalists interconnected by fetish gear, sports equipment, and medical supplies harmonize queer club hits to unearth queer history, to make us remember the ongoing HIV/AIDS crisis.

With ritual, pageantry, improvisation, and free association, Blood Fountain depicts the endless consequences of HIV/AIDS within individual queer bodies and on queer communities.

Now in its fourth year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City’s most exciting contemporary artists.


A.R.M. is a collaboration between artists Alexandro Segade, Robert Acklen, and Malik Gaines.

Their shapeshifting projects use a promiscuous mix of performance, video, photography, sound, installation, and sculpture to explore queer subjects. Recent works include Poses (2017) a durational performance at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York; Arcángel Miguel (2017) a multimedia performance at the Kuir Festival in Bogotá, Colombia; A Cruel Angel’s Thesis, a mail artwork produced and sent to an audience of the group’s own making; Fire Signs (2017) began with a 2014 residency at BOFFO, Fire Island, New York and was the subject of a solo show at DD55 Gallery in Cologne, Germany; and The Legend (2015) a video piece that premiered at Rogaland Art Center in Stavanger, Norway and also was presented at Play: Video and Performance Festival in Düsseldorf, Germany.


Major support for High Line Programs is provided by The Brown Foundation, Inc. of Houston.

High Line Art, Programs, and accessibility are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York City Council, under the leadership of Speaker Corey Johnson.
