    Laurie Anderson's work will be among the long-term installations in the newly renovated Building 6 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, opening this Sunday, May 28, 2017. Anderson was one of the museum's first artists-in-residence and has returned many times to develop and discuss works-in-progress. In Building 6, which nearly doubles the institution's current gallery footprint, she will create a multi-functional environment that will serve as a working studio and exhibition venue, highlighting both her creative process and over 10 years of archival work. Other artists represented in the space include Jenny Holzer, James Turrell, Louise Bourgeois, Robert Rauschenberg, and Gunnar Schonbeck.
