Laurie Anderson
Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 7PM

As one of America’s foremost contemporary artists; a persistent experimenter at the intersection of performance, media, and technology; and an inventor of tools and instruments, Laurie Anderson and EMPAC’s exceptional research and production environment for adventurous new work are an ideal match. The residency provides Anderson with wide access to space, technology, and support for creative experimentation, but just as important, brings the artist into ongoing dialogue with students and faculty at Rensselaer.

Through examples and an exchange with EMPAC Director Johannes Goebel, she will discuss the concrete steps she takes to archive her tapes, instruments, performances, texts, films, videos, drawings, sculptures, and media—intangible and tangible.
