Laurie Anderson, the experimental composer and performance artist, has captivated audiences since she rose to prominence through the New York Downtown scene in the 1970s. Anderson takes on politics, culture, and questions of humanity in her work. Her recent documentary Heart of a Dog was shortlisted for an Academy Award. In January of this year she put on a concert in Times Square for dogs at a low, dog-friendly frequency. Join Anderson at the Frost Art Museum as she discusses her extraordinary multimedia career.

Since 1981, the Steven & Dorothea Green Critics’ Lecture Series has brought over 130 renowned artists, critics, curators and other art world luminaries to our South Florida community. These speakers have shaped art history through their scholarly, creative, and leadership contributions. They have inspired us to think critically, investigate further, and consider the discourses and practices that shape the world of art.
