In 2018, The Language of the Future incorporates the hallucinogenic rush of information and takes on the current nature of stories in the wider political arena.
About Laurie Anderson
Unapologetically experimental, Laurie Anderson is best known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology. Based out of New York City, she has published seven books, had chart-topping hits including 1981s “O Superman,” and has had her artwork presented in major galleries around the world. In 2015 she directed the film Heart of a Dog inspired by her terrier Lolabelle, and dedicated to her late husband Lou Reed. Rolling Stone describes Anderson as both “a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy” and “a minimalist painter of melancholy moods who addresses universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace.”
