In honor of The New York Public Library’s recent acquisition of the Lou Reed Archive, and the 75th anniversary of Reed’s birthday, the Library is hosting a performance of Reed’s conceptual installation and soundscape, led by his original collaborator, Stewart Hurwood. Plus, in keeping with Reed’s study of the art of tai chi, demonstrations will be led at 7 and 9 PM by tai chi master Ren Guangyi.
