“Agnes Martin: With My Back to the World” chronicles the life, career, and philosophy of abstract expressionist painter Agnes Martin. In her adopted home of Taos NM, the Canadian artist worked at an unflagging pace well into her 90s. Over a series of conversations recorded between 2002 and 2008, Martin talks about creating her meticulously designed canvases and discusses the enigmatic origins of her work, her childhood in Saskatchewan, and what brought her to New Mexico after many years in New York City. 2002. 1h.
“Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present” examines the pioneering life and works of avant-garde video artist, experimental filmmaker, musician, and educator, Tony Conrad. Utilizing intimate footage of Tony and his collaborators shot over the last twenty-two years, as well as his own archive of recordings and films, the film mirrors Conrad’s own playfully radical approach to art making. The non-linear structure allows Conrad to wildly free associate his streams of consciousness, revealing an honest and humane way of navigating a remarkable, creative life. 2016. 1h42m.
“BURDEN,” by Timothy Marrinan and Richard Dewey, looks at Chris Burden’s work and private life with an innovative mix of still-potent videos of his 70s performances, personal films and audio recordings, latter day footage at his Topanga Canyon studio, and comments from friends, fellow students, colleagues and critics, all peppered with Burden’s thoughts and musings from throughout the years. Burden guaranteed his place in art history in the 1970s and, in 1980, reinvented himself as the creator of truly mesmerizing installations and sculptures. 2016. 1h30m.
