Agnes Martin: WIth My Back to the World


Montana Premiere

A groundbreaking documentary on the internationally renowned painter, designated by ARTnews Magazine one of the world’s topten living artists. This documentary was shot over a period of four years, from 1998 through 2002, Agnes Martin’s ninetieth year. Interviews with the artist are cut with shots at work in her studio in Taos, New Mexico, with photographs and archival footage, and with images of her work from over five decades. It is a venue for Martin to speak about her work, her working methods, her life as an artist, and her views about the creative process. She also discusses her film, Gabriel and reads from her poetry and lectures. In keeping with Martin’s chosen life of solitude, she alone appears in the documentary.
