This Saturday at the Ohio Theatre at Playhouse Square, Laurie Anderson will be performing Burning Leaves, a retrospective of songs and stories that culls pieces from her acclaimed solo shows The Speed of Darkness, Happiness, The End of the Moon and Homeland.

The Season 1 artist’s new sound sculpture In the House. In the Fire. is also included in The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989 currently at the Guggenheim Museum. The exhibition traces how Asian art, literature, and philosophy have influenced and assimilated into the work of vanguard American artists, a diverse selection that includes among them Jack Kerouac, Georgia O’Keeffe, Yoko Ono, James McNeill Whistler, Robert Irwin, and Ann Hamilton (Season 1).

    Laurie Anderson is phenomenal. Anyone see this feature about her in FLYP? She’s ridiculous and I love it. http://www.flypmedia.com/issues/plus/08/#1/1
