Six Degrees of Francis Bacon

Let's try it with, oh, say, Jenny Holzer:

Holzer acted in a film by Beth B and Scott B, The Trap Door (1980)

Beth B later directed Two Small Bodies, which starred Suzy Amis and Fred Ward.

Suzy Amis is the current wife of director James Cameron.

James Cameron was married to Kathryn Bigelow from 1989-1991.

Bigelow is a past member of Art & Language.

Art & Language is in the Tate collection with Francis Bacon.

[OK it's a lousy game, because no one current is really connected to Bacon except through the Tate. The Trap Door is chock-a-block with art stars; have never seen it. Here's co-director Scott B's description, from IMDb: "A Nietzschian parable on the fate of innocence, THE TRAP DOOR follows the mishaps of Jeremy (John Ahearn) as he is fired by his boss (Jenny Holzer), gets laughed out of court by Judge Gary Indiana, loses his girlfriend to sleazy Richard Prince, is hustled by prospective employer (Bill Rice) and mauled by predatory bird-women. Finally, he seeks the help of a shrink (the legendary Jack Smith) who turns out to be the most demented of all."]
