Laurie Anderson in Conversation: All the Things I Lost in the Flood

Laurie Anderson is a luminary of language. Her recent book, All The Things I Lost In The Flood, Essays on Pictures, Language and Code is about all the things that represent her career, era, and personal experience. In it she examines the power and perils of language and storytelling, dissecting the relationship between words and images – provoking questions about beauty, time, reality, and memory.

And so, the conversation begins.

In her final performance as 2018 International Artist in Residence at HOTA, Laurie Anderson engages in conversation about stories and language with local writers and artists.

“For forty years, I have made drawings, music, paintings, installations, film, sculpture, electronic design, software, opera, and theatre. At the root of all these works are stories. They are the engines.”

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts, Canal Street Communications and Pomegranate Arts.

About Laurie Anderson

Unapologetically experimental, Laurie Anderson is best known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology. Based out of New York City, she has published seven books, had chart-topping hits including 1981s “O Superman,” and has had her artwork presented in major galleries around the world. In 2015 she directed the film Heart of a Dog inspired by her terrier Lolabelle, and dedicated to her late husband Lou Reed. Rolling Stone describes Anderson as both “a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy” and “a minimalist painter of melancholy moods who addresses universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace.”
