Laurie Anderson who was the recipient of the 2011 Guild Hall Lifetime Achievement Award in the Visual Arts will be showcased in all three museum Galleries. Anderson is an avant-garde artist, composer, musician and film director whose work spans performance art, pop music, and multimedia projects. Initially trained in violin and sculpting, Anderson pursued a variety of performance art projects in New York during the 1970s, making particular use of language, technology, and visual imagery. All of these elements are still a vital part of her artistic output.
The Exhibition at Guild Hall will be divided into three components that will highlight various media that Anderson works in, allowing the visitor to experience the genius of this unique artist. The three components will be: Virtual Reality, Video Performance and drawings.
