Out of Line: "MELT" by James Scruggs

MELT! is a somewhat-satirical and very timely performance exploring race, gender, and social justice in a not-too-distant possible future, which took place on May 17, 2018 on the High Line.

This new commission by James Scruggs opened the third year of the High Line’s Out of Line series, which includes arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City’s most exciting contemporary artists.
