Laurie Anderson is EMPAC’s First Artist-in-Residence

Laurie Anderson was NASA’s first artist-in-residence, in 2003, which made a lot of people very, very angry – not because it was Laurie Anderson but because why does NASA have an artist-in-residence, exactly? – and seems destined to never happen again. Hopefully, the EMPAC will have slightly better luck, because they have just this week decided that Laurie Anderson will also be their first artist-in-residence – though they add the modifier “distinguished” – for a term of three years, beginning… now, it seems. Right now. Anderson’s been working on a lengthy piece called Delusion at RPI for some time, but this residency is seemingly pretty open, so who knows what Anderson will get up to. No one expected “O Superman” to be a hit, either, did they? (FULL ARTICLE: Larry Murray, Berkshire on Stage)
