Free Williamsburg: What do you think of Williamsburg?
Laurie Anderson: I think it’s a pretty cool thing. I mean I’m kind of amazed that so many people are doing paintings again. I love it, I just love paintings, but I thought we were going in a whole other realm of doing stuff on the web or whatever, not just sitting around and making paintings, like the 1950s or something. But, there are some good paintings! Every time you say something about New York, and you think you’ve got it all figured out and you think you understand it, along comes a painter that goes “Hey, check out my paintings!”
