Richard Artschwager: Shut Up and Look is the story of Richard Artschwager, whose works command hundreds of thousands of dollars, although fame eluded him. The film provides an intimate look at this extraordinarily gifted man, who sadly passed away on 9 February 2013.
Late in life Artschwager abandoned a reclusive lifestyle and allowed the camera into the private world of his studio, his personal life and his colourful past. Agnes Gund, John Torreano and Malcolm Morley reveal the personal side of a very quirky, irreverent man, whose work continues to confound the critics.
Directed by Maryte Kavaliauskas and produced by Morning Slayter, US, 57 mins
