Memory is the theme as artists Susan Rothenberg, Mike Kelley, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Josiah McElheny are profiled. McElheny, a glassblower, often puts his own spin on works of the past. Kelley looks for "materialist ritual" in his video art, paintings and sculptures. Sugimoto calls his photographs "fossilizations of the time." And Rothenberg, a Southwestern painter, says "I don't want to get too literal. I want the viewer to do the work, too." Isabella Rossellini is the host.
