Avant-garde artist Laurie Anderson finds hope in loss
Originally published February 22, 2018
Iconic avant-garde artist, Laurie Anderson, is back with two new works: the first, an album with the legendary Kronos Quartet; the second, a book that looks back at a long, vibrant career across the spectrum of art. Both projects share the unlikely origin of Hurricane Sandy's arrival to to New York City in 2012, when floods reached Anderson's basement studio and destroyed decades' worth of archived work, notebooks and props.
Laurie Anderson joins Tom Power to talk about finding the joy in loss and mining catastrophe for inspiration. Her album and book are out now.
