(Online) Virtual Realities: Artist Talk with Hsin-Chien Huang and Laurie Anderson
PLEASE NOTE: The date of this program has changed to Monday, November 29, 7 pm ET

Pioneering American performance artist Laurie Anderson and inventive Taiwanese media artist Hsin-Chien Huang have metaphorically been to the moon and back to create engaging and immersive art out of cutting-edge technology.
The two innovators have been working together on creative projects for nearly three decades. From their 1995 multimedia CD-ROM, Puppet Motel, to their award-winning virtual reality projects, Anderson and Huang have continuously tested the limits of how art and technology can immerse viewers in words, worlds, and wonder.
A video version of The covered room (La camera insabbiata) (2017), a virtual reality work created by Anderson and Huang, is included in Laurie Anderson: The Weather, which is on view at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden through Summer 2022. In La camera insabbiata, the viewer flies through an enormous structure made of words, drawings, and stories that continuously form and reform. The work was named Best VR Experience at the 74th Venice International Film Festival.
The two artists join Hirshhorn curator Marina Isgro to discuss their ongoing collaboration and the creative ways they tell stories and reimagine the world through technology.
