Performance artist Alison Knowles is bringing her Make a Salad piece to the High Line on Earth Day, April 22nd. The piece was first staged in Baltimore in 1962, and has since been performed around the world—below you can watch the event as it took place at the Tate Modern in 2008. During the piece, Knowles makes a giant salad, which is later served to those in attendance. From the press release:
“Alison Knowles is an influential figure in contemporary art and in the world of performance,” said Cecilia Alemani, the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Curator and Director of High Line Art. “I look forward to re-staging her legendary work for the first time in a public space in New York City. The performance will unite the playfulness of a great artist with the joy of sharing a communal meal at a breathtaking location on the High Line.”
To take part in the massive culinary arts piece, head there on the 22nd between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
