Richard Artschwager: Shut Up and Look

  • to This is a past program

Filmed over eight years, Shut Up and Look provides an intimate portrait of this extraordinarily gifted artist, who late in life abandoned a reclusive lifestyle to allow the filmmakers into his studio and personal life. Interviews with artists, collectors, and friends reveal the personal side of a very quirky, irreverent man who confounded critics by redefining his work and influencing a new generation of artists. (2012, Dir. M. Kavaliauskas, 57 min.)

A Q&A with director Maryte Kavaliauskas, producer Morning Slayter, and artist Arie Galles follows the screening.  

In conjunction with Richard Artschwager!
