Laurie Anderson, in an interview with the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark's Louisiana Channel, offers some sage advice to people both young and old. She suggests that applying a term as broad as "multimedia artist" to herself has helped keep her work from being pigeonholed and concludes: "Whatever makes you feel really free and really good, that's what to do. It's really simple." You can see what else she has to say in the video here. In another video, she discusses her correspondence with John F. Kennedy in 1960, which informed her new piece The Language of the Future: Letters to Jack.Read more|Journal Topics:Artist News Videolaurie andersonhttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/watch-laurie-anderson-heart-of-a-dog-screened-dogs-guardian-2016-05-16May 17, 2016|1 comments
