Laurie Anderson lecture at Boston University

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts

The Boston University School of Visual Arts at the College of Fine Arts is pleased to present acclaimed artist Laurie Anderson as the eighth annual Tim Hamill Visiting Artist. The lecture series, named in honor of BU School of Visual Arts alumnus Tim Hamill, was launched in 2004 to present artists whose work crosses boundaries among artistic disciplines, and who connect to the art world in a variety of ways. This year’s lecture will be held on Monday, February 27 at 6:30pm in Boston University’s Morse Auditorium (602 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA), and it’s free and open to the public. Call 617.353.3371 for more information.

New York-based artist Laurie Anderson has created large-scale theatrical works that combine a variety of media—music, video, storytelling, projected imagery, sculpture—in which she is an electrifying performer. As a visual artist, her work has been shown at the Guggenheim Museum in SoHo, New York, as well as extensively in Europe, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.  She has also released seven albums for Warner Bros., including “Big Science,” featuring the song “O Superman,” which rose to number two on the British pop charts.

The Boston University School of Visual Arts at the College of Fine Arts is a community of artists within a great university and in a city that offers diversity within a vibrant arts culture. Founded in 1954 as a professional training school at Boston University, the school offers an intensive program of studio training combined with liberal arts studies leading to the Bachelor’s of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees. The first-rate teaching and mentoring of its regular faculty is supplemented by a vibrant program of visiting artists, guest lecture series, and exhibitions. The School offers introductory and advanced classes in painting, sculpture, graphic design, art education, ceramics, photography, glassblowing, and printmaking. A solid background in art history, contemporary critical analysis, and liberal arts complements the studio arts courses.
