Quotes & Highlights
Laurie Anderson was the first artist-in-residence at NASA, she wrote the entry about New York for the Encyclopedia Britannica, and she broke the mold of contemporary performance when she exploded onto the scene.
“An acutely humane observer, finding warmth and humor in stories about the ordinary turned exotic.” —New York Daily News
“Laurie Anderson … has broken through and made some of the most interesting art of the late 20th Century … earning as she goes a reputation as one of the world’s premier performance artists.” —Wired
A major force in the American cultural landscape, Laurie Anderson is one of this era’s most prolific and farsighted artists, playfully taking our imaginations beyond the boundaries of the expected with her provocative mixed media extravaganzas. Now, following the great success of her last work Happiness, today’s most celebrated performance artist returns to UCLA Live with the second in a series of intimate, low-tech solo works.
Inspired in part by her recent stint as artist-in-residence at NASA, Anderson’s The End of the Moon will feature a blend of stories, songs and instrumental music, exploring the contemporary meanings of freedom and time, spirituality and consumerism, in an attempt to create a true portrait of this country at the beginning of the century.
