Despite the crippling force with which Hurricane Sandy has hit the art world, MoMA PS1 will still be hosting musician and visual artist M.I.A. to talk about her first monograph with Rizzoli this Sunday, November 4, 3-5pm, in the Long Island City contemporary art museum’s Performance Dome.
ARTINFO interviewed the artist back in September about her autobiographical collages, aesthetic influences, and journey from art school at Central Saint Martins to the recording studio. If you can navigate your way there, be sure to here her talk in person about her book, which includes a ton of original collage artwork, tour photographs, and song lyrics from each album — lyrics which will be familiar to regulars at PS1, where M.I.A. performed back in 2010.
