from Taos and Santa Fe, to Brooklyn, Manhattan, Woodstock, Las Vegas and
Los Angeles, this film takes viewers on a revealing trip into the studios
and lives of a group of singular artists. Featuring memorable iconoclasts
such as Richard Tuttle, Agnes Martin, John Baldessari,
Robert Williams, Joan Snyder, Mike Bidlo, Amy Adler, Carolyn Martin, Mat
Gleason, Marcia Tucker and Dave Hickey, the creative "act"
is there to see and study. Themes include artists' relations with the press,
showing one's work, distilling concepts into an essence, and what it means
to succeed in the artworld.
