Artists Speak: Conversations on Contemporary Art with Glenn D. Lowry Spotlight: Artists Set the Stage April 17, 2007 6:30 p.m. Artists break boundaries, working in a variety of mediums and blurring the lines between them. Since the early twentieth century, painters, sculptors, and filmmakers have gone beyond traditional visual art forms and taken their artistic process to the stage, collaborating as theater and opera directors and set designers. Through presentations and a conversation moderated by MoMA director Glenn D. Lowry, performance artist Laurie Anderson and William Kentridge—director and scene designer for BAM's spring production of Mozart's The Magic Flute—discuss how they bring their creative process to performance. Note: Laurie Anderson's comments are not included in the recording. Photo courtesy of Paula Court
