    Laurie Anderson Exhibition "Forty-Nine Days in the Bardo" Opens at Philadelphia's Fabric Museum; Anderson to Perform

    Laurie Anderson's new exhibition Forty-Nine Days in the Bardo made its debut at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia last week. The exhibition, which runs through November 19, uses the structure of a diary and The Tibetan Book of the Dead—also known as The Great Liberation Through Hearing in the Bardo—to explore the themes of love and death, the many levels of dreaming, and illusion. This two-floor exhibition include texts as well as drawings, sculptures, projections, and sound and are made from materials including mud, foil, iron, chalk, and ashes.
