The first exhibition of Laurie's paintings in New York, Laurie Anderson: Boat is due to open Saturday, May 12, 2012, at 126 Leroy St in New York. On display will be a number of Laurie's works that bring the presence of the theater to the canvas. The show will also include a three-dimensional holographic reality entitled From the Air , as well as a series of drawings entitled Lolabelle in the Bardo depicting the 49 days between lives in The Tibetan Book of the Dead .

The Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at RPI announced May 9 that Laurie had been named its first distinguished artist in residence at RPI, with a three year term. Rensselaer's press release for the occasion stated that "The residency provides Anderson with wide access to space, technology, and support for creative experimentation, but as important, brings the artist into ongoing dialogue with students and faculty at Rensselaer."
