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 New York, as well as extensively in Europe, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.  She has also released seven albums for Warner Brothers including “Big Science,” featuring the song “O Superman,” which rose to number two on the British pop charts.  In 1999 she staged “Songs and Stories from Moby Dick,” an interpretation of Herman Melville’s 1851 novel.

Nicole Eisenman visits Boston University

February 6th, 2012 in CFA, Visual Arts

The School of Visual Arts Presents: Nicole Eisenman

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2012 6:30 P.M.
MORSE AUDITORIUM
602 COMMONWEALTH AVE
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

New York-based artist Nicole Eisenman has created a self-aware and psychologically probing body of work that includes installations, animations, drawings, collages, assemblages, found objects, murals, and paintings.  Much of her work focuses on different ways of coping; however she uses humor in a way that is different from her contemporaries.  Her flair for drawing pulls you in, then stops you in your tracks with content that might not be so funny.  Eisenman offers an insight into the isolation experienced in the pursuit of artistic creation and the very human need to seek diversion from that same pursuit.

Eisenman’s work will be on view in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, March 1-May 27, 2012
