The acclaimed new documentary film exploring the world of contemporary art The Price of Everything will open in the UK on 16 November 2018. The film is by two-time Academy Award® nominated director Nathaniel Kahn (My Architect) and producer Jennifer Blei Stockman.
The film Premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January, The Price of Everything delves into the rarefied contemporary art world, exploring the role of art and artistic passion in today’s money-driven, consumer-based society and looking at what it takes to become a top-selling contemporary artist.
Going behind the scenes with the movers and influencers of the opaque art market, The Price of Everything gets inside some of the world’s top galleries and auction houses, offering a unique insight into the complex dynamics of how works of art are valued, inflated and collected in a world where everything can be bought and sold.
Exploring the labyrinth of the contemporary art world, The Price of Everything examines the role of art and artistic passion in today’s money-driven, consumer-based society. Featuring collectors, dealers, auctioneers and a rich range of artists, from current market darlings Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, George Condo and Njideka Akunyili Crosby, to one-time art star Larry Poons, the film exposes deep contradictions as it holds a mirror up to contemporary values and times, coaxing out the dynamics at play in pricing the priceless.
