Richard Artschwager: Shut Up and Look tells the story of the American artist known for his inventive, category-defying creations-plastic and wood sculptures and paintings on crenelated industrial paper. Despite being highly esteemed by museum directors and curators of contemporary art, fame eluded him up to the time of his death in early 2013. The film follows Artschwager as he turns reality upside down with his whimsical works of art. It joins him late in life as he abandons his reclusive lifestyle and permits a camera into the private world of his studio, his personal life, and his reminiscences of his colorful past. Shut Up and Look details the artist's childhood in New Mexico, and his journey from baby photographer to furniture builder to classical pianist before achieving ultimate success as a mixed-media artist.

Agnes Gund, John Torreano, and Malcolm Morley reveal a deeper understanding of the quirky, irreverent man who confounded critics and inspired a new generation of artists with his ever-evolving artwork.
