Troublemakers chronicles the history of land art in the 1960s and 1970s, when a group of radical New York artists began producing earthworks on a monumental scale in the desert spaces of the American southwest.

The film will be introduced by Lissa Ballinger, Curator and Program Associate at the Aspen Institute.
