Set in the desolate desert spaces of the American southwest, the film unearths the history of land art during the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s. Troublemakers is ultimately a story of renegades and firebrands all willing to risk their future careers on radical change and experimentation-a marked contrast to the hyper-speculative contemporary art world of today. Featuring rare interviews with a veritable who's who of American Art of the twentieth century.

Screens with local shorts: The Long, Lonely Road Home – Dir: Dylan Rhys Howard & Isachsen, and The Madness of a Lonely Man – Dir: aAron Munson.

Includes a one night exhibition in the lobby by local artists Stephanie Jonsson & Daniel Evans, and a Q&A following the screening.
