The Price of Everything (12A)

The Price of Everything

Deep dive into the rarefied world of contemporary art where everything can be bought and sold, The Price of Everything is a stunning exposé of the role of art in today’s consumerist society.

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 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.
