Poster for 53rd New York Film Festival Designed by Laurie Anderson
It's that time of year again, already. The fall festivals are gearing up for their season, and one of the big ones is the New York Film Festival - about to celebrate its 53rd year. The festival has revealed their official poster for the NYFF53, designed by artist Laurie Anderson. The design features a striking piece of art contained within red borders, along with all the other text and info for this year's fest. Anderson joins a long list of prestigious NYFF poster artists including the likes of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, and, last year's artist, Laurie Simmons. Take a closer look in full below.
Here's the poster for the 53rd New York Film Festival, hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center this fall:
"We are thrilled to welcome Laurie Anderson to the NYFF family, and to have an artist of her caliber carry on this 53-year tradition," said Film Society of Lincoln Center Board Chairman Ann Tenenbaum. "Her innovative and daring work is a perfect representation of what we strive to achieve annually at the festival, and throughout the year at the Film Society." Commenting on the piece you see above, Anderson stated: "The NYFF is such an eclectic and ecstatically wild mix of films, and I wanted to try to capture some of the variety of subjects and styles. The original piece this is based on, Follow the Sound, is 18 feet long with lots of plots and characters and fragments. I made this painting two years ago when I was feeling especially inspired by the scale of projected film and the possibilities of abrupt jump cuts." For more visit filmlinc.org.
