The ‘heartbreakingly beautiful’ art of Laurie Anderson

The ‘heartbreakingly beautiful’ art of Laurie Anderson

Laurie Anderson could be considered a modern Renaissance woman but she would humbly say that she’s “just a dabbler and a tinkerer”.

That dabbling includes writing, composing, photography, painting and filmmaking. Her ground-breaking work encompasses performance art and multimedia projects, blending the avant-garde and popular culture.

The largest-ever US exhibition of her pioneering, five-decade career is now on view at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC until 31 July, 2022.
