Make a Salad (1962 - ) ->

Alison Knowles' Fluxus event score "Make a Salad" from 1962 was performed at the Baltimore Museum of Art as a feature performance at the opening of the "Work Ethics" exhibition curated by Helen Molesworth.

The salad will be made again for several hundred spectators at the Wexner Museum in October 2004.

Beginning the event, a Mozart duo for violin and cello is followed by production of the salad by the artist and eating of the salad by the audience. The salad is always different as Mozart remains the same. At the Wexner, all red vagetables and flowers will be mixed in a huge vat with a canoe paddle. The Piece is concluded as the salad is eaten by the audience accompanied by the Mozart.
