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.
