RoseLee Goldberg currently teaches at New York University in New York City.From Library Journal:
Laurie Anderson, the high priestess of performance art/rock, gets the royal treatment in this gorgeous coffee-table-book retrospective of her acclaimed 30-year (and still going) career. Goldberg, author of the critically praised Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present and Performance: Live Art Since 1960, is the consummate performance art critic and chronicler. With Anderson's blessing and involvement, Goldberg wends her way chronologically through the art, writings, performance pieces, videos, films, and installations of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. The 323 illustrations, including 117 color plates, could have easily upstaged the text, but Goldberg's prose is delightfully intelligent and insightful. "The goal of this book," writes Goldberg, "is to present the full range of Anderson's creativity." Mission accomplished. This is a "bomb book" that will fly off the shelves; the alluringly bizarre cover alone (the finale from her 1983 piece, United States) is well worth the modest price. Recommended for all libraries; those with active performance collections should buy multiple copies.DBarry X. Miller, Austin P.L., TX
