2018 | Running Time: 105 minutes | Rating: NR

Exploring the labyrinth of the contemporary art world, this film spotlights 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 George Condo, Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter and Njideka Akunyili Crosby, to one-time art star Larry Poons, it exposes deep contradictions as it holds a mirror up to contemporary values and times, coaxing out the dynamics at play in pricing the priceless and ultimately asks the question: Who does art belong to? THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Filmmakers: Nathaniel Kahn, Director; Jennifer Stockman, Debi Wisch, Carla Solomon, Producers

“Nathaniel Kahn’s brilliant and captivating documentary about how the art world got converted into a money market.”
