Shut Up And Look is the story of Richard Artschwager, the American Artist, whose works command hundreds of thousands of dollars, yet fame eludes him. The film provides an intimate look at this extraordinarily gifted man, who late in life, abandons a reclusive lifestyle and allows the camera into the private world of his studio, his personal life and revisiting his colorful past. Agnes Gund, John Torreano and Malcolm Morley reveal the personal side of a very quirky, irreverent man, who continues to confound the critics by redefining his work and influencing a generation of artists.
"We were privileged and honored to spend 8 years with Richard Artschwager, who sadly passed away three months after we completed the film at the age of 89." (M.Kavaliauskas, M. Slayter)
