      Nexus Presents Laurie Anderson – Grammy Winning Musician, Artist, and Filmmaker

      Laurie Anderson is one of America’s most renowned, daring, and inventive artistic voices. Initially trained in violin and sculpting, Anderson pursued a variety of performance art projects in New York during the 1970s, focusing particularly on language, technology, and visual imagery. Since that time, Anderson has gone on to create large-scale theatrical works which combine a variety of media—music, video, storytelling, projected imagery, sculpture—in which she is an electrifying performer. As a visual artist, her work has been shown at the Guggenheim Museum, SoHo; as well as extensively in Europe, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. She has also released seven albums for Warner Brothers, including Big Science, featuring the song “O Superman,” which rose to number 2 on the British pop charts. In 1999, she staged Songs and Stories From Moby Dick, an interpretation of Herman Melville’s 1851 novel. She lives and works in New York City. Anderson received the 2019 Grammy award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance for Landfall, a collaboration with Kronos Quartet from Nonesuch Records. The album, which blends electronic and traditional string music, is inspired by Hurricane Sandy, which devastated much of New York City in the fall of 2012. Other recent projects have included an ongoing interdisciplinary installation at MASS MoCA and the 2015 documentary Heart of a Dog, which was shortlisted for the best documentary Oscar and released by the Criterion Collection.
