Alison Knowles Makes a Salad at the Tate in London

Make a Salad With Fluxus Dressing

Experimental artist Alison Knowles is planning on serving up one giant salad. Her 1962 Fluxus performance piece, Make a Salad, is being performed at London's Tate Museum. The piece begins with a cellist playing a Mozart concerto, and once the music is completed, Knowles, along with five museum assistants, will begin chopping the salad. The main focus of the piece will then become the chopping sound, which will be amplified by speakers and then relayed around the gallery. When they're done chopping the salad — which will consist of lettuce, cucumber, carrot and tomato and will feed 300 people — it will be placed into a huge vessel and dressed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and herbs.

Even though it's going to be a big salad — does anyone else think of that Seinfeld episode? — it's not going to be the largest. The Spanish town of Pulpi set the record last September and were then beaten by a community in Israel this past November.
