Artists Studio: Jason Moran & Laurie Anderson

“[Moran] made sound music move outward like a cloud, as if his piano were the censer in a church.”
The New York Times

“Anderson has never shied away from the cutting-edge, or the unknown.”
The Guardian

MacArthur Fellow and Curator of the Armory’s Artist Studios, Jason Moran continues his Veterans Room tradition of inviting a musical dialogue with fellow world-renowned artists; first with composer Louis Andriessen (2016), then tenor Lawrence Brownlee (2018). In 2020, Moran will perform a musical collaboration with Grammy Award-winning music, visual, and performance artist Laurie Anderson. Moran pushes the importance of the jazz form as well as other forms of exchange and improvisation. For these performances, he invites Anderson to join him in an exchange of improvisation and a cataloguing dialogue. Moran and Anderson have expanded careers in music and visual arts. Their parallel practices will launch an evening of shared experiences, improvisation, and new surprises.
