516 Arts AMP Concerts and UNM ARTS Lab Presents Laurie Anderson in Albuquerque

June 10th and 11th
Laurie Anderson is one of the seminal artists of our time. Her genre-crossing work encompasses performance, film, music, installation, writing, photography and sculpture. Anderson will perform Burning Leaves: A Retrospective of Song and Stories at the KiMo Theatre, followed by a reception at 516 ARTS, where her piece Hidden Inside Mountains will be featured, which "uses telegraphic language to describe the scale and sensuality of nature." The next night she will participate in a talk and screening on the dome of the Plantarium addressing how artists are working with scientific technologies.
