For John Giorno

For John Giorno
Laurie Anderson

On the occasion of the John Giorno Poetry Day – 19 September 2020 – experimental artist and musician Laurie Anderson presents a premiere of a previously unseen video piece created for the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, in homage to her friend John Giorno.

Barely a year ago, the great American poet John Giorno left us, leaving behind him a unique and protean body of work, covering all the interstices of contemporary creation. This piece by Laurie Anderson is part of 7 Pieces for John Giorno, a musical tribute conceived by Guillaume Sorge, bringing together leading figures of the American underground (Laurie Anderson, Thurston Moore) and the avant-garde of Europe (Lucy Railton, Bendik Giske, Felicia Atkinson).
