Examines a diverse group of New York-based artists in order to record many of the most provocative works and ideas of the past decade. These artists created performances, sculptures, earthworks, tableaux, furniture, shaped canvases and more using unusual materials. In this "idea art," their focus is often as much social and psychological as artistic. Dist.: Michael Blackwood Productions. c2000. 91 min.
