Laurie Anderson’s Books

Why: The performance artist/musician Laurie Anderson has also spent these 40 years making books. She’s said her favorite books are the ones you can “kind of hear,” so she uses pictures as words and words as pictures. In this small exhibition—organized by the artist specifically for the Henry Art Gallery—there’s her 1971 The Package, a mystery story with pictures but not words, and there’s also Words with the Word The in Front of Them, the limited-edition book she printed this past summer, borrowing incantations from her performances. Here’s another door into this great mind. (Henry Art Gallery, 15th Ave NE and NE 41st St,, 11 am–4 pm, $10 suggested)
