Biography
Laurie Anderson

Laurie Anderson is one of America’s most renowned — and daring — creative pioneers, known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology. As writer, director, visual artist, and vocalist she has created groundbreaking works that span the worlds of art, theater, and experimental music.

Her recording career, launched in 1981 with the song “O Superman,” includes the soundtrack to her feature film Home of the Brave and her album Life on a String. Ms. Anderson’s live shows range from simple spoken word to elaborate multimedia stage performances, such as Songs and Stories for Moby Dick. She has published seven books, and her visual work has been presented in major museums around the world.

In 2002 she was appointed NASA’s first artist-in-residence, culminating in The End of the Moon, her touring solo performance. Other projects include Hidden Inside Mountains, Homeland, Delusion, a retrospective of her work in São Paulo and Rio, her exhibitions Forty-Nine Days in the Bardo, Boat (curated by Vito Schnabel), Habeas Corpus (Yoko Ono’s Courage Award for the Arts), and her film Heart of a Dog. She has held residencies at CAP UCLA in Los Angeles and EMPAC in Troy, New York.

When MASS MoCA’s Building 6 opened in 2017, it began a 15-year rotating exhibition of archival and new works, including Ms. Anderson’s and Hsin-Chien Huang’s first collaborative VR works, Aloft and Chalkroom, the latter of which won Best VR Film at the Venice Film Festival. She continues to tour Language of the Future, has collaborated with Christian McBride and Philip Glass on several projects, and works with the activist group The Federation, which she co-founded in 2017.

In 2018 Laurie Anderson and the Kronos Quartet released the Grammy-winning album Landfall on Nonesuch, commissioned by the Kronos Quartet in 2013 and inspired by Hurricane Sandy. All the Things I Lost in the Flood, her book of images and essays about pictures, language, and codes, was released by Rizzoli in 2018.
