Banksy is both revered and reviled, considered both a vandal and a genius. Completely anonymous, he is nevertheless without question one of the world's best-known living artists.
Over the course of a month-long residency in New York in October 2013, Banksy and his team took to the streets secretly creating a variety of public work ranging from elaborate conceptual stunts to traditional graffiti art. Constantly evading a citywide search by the NYPD, Banksy's work created a public response that was an equal mix of reverence and derision. From a Central Park stand where priceless originals were anonymously sold for $60, to a junkyard in Queens, New York City served as the canvas for this street art vigilante.

Shot in 16mm shortly after Marden's 1975 exhibition at the Guggenheim, this film reveals, through interviews with Marden and numerous shots of his preparations and working process, the depth of intellectual creativity behind his works.
