Laurie Anderson is a world-renowned performance artist whose recent work, Dirtday! is a look at politics, theories of evolution, families, history, and animals set against a detailed and lush sonic landscape.

Dr. Roald Hoffmann, the Frank H.T. Rhodes Professor of Humane Letters Emeritus at Cornell University and 1981 chemistry Nobel laureate, is also a writer of poetry, plays, and essays.

PRI’s Artist-in-Residence, John Gurche, is a world-renowned paleo-artist who combines his knowledge of anatomy and paleontology with artistic craftsmanship to recreate vivid worlds of past life based on bones, fossils, and other remains.

The discussion will be led by Barbara Mink, artist, founder, and artistic director of the Ithaca-based nonprofit Light in Winter Festival from 1999-2011 and member artist of the Ithaca-based nonprofit State of the Art Gallery.

This program is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
