Travelling 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. Music by Beck, Tom Waits, Charles Mingus, Count Basie, Ted Greene, Cindy Lee Berryhill, Antonio Carlos Jobim
