The Price of Everything

(Rated M)

“Should one of my paintings cost more than a house?”

Session Times



With unprecedented access to pivotal artists and the white-hot hoopla surrounding them, The Price of Everything is a deep-dive investigation into the absurdity and awe of the contemporary art world. Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Nathaniel Kahn (My Architect) travels to art fairs, galleries, museums and intimate studios in order to trace the growth of the market from the '70s boom until today — holding up a much-needed mirror to our present-day morality in the process. Featuring a series of revealing interviews with renowned artists (Marilyn Minter, Jeff Koons, George Condo, Njideka Akunyili Crosby), dealers (Gavin Brown, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Boone), auction-house honchos (Amy Cappellazzo, Simon de Pury), and collectors (Stefan Edlis, Holly Peterson).

"Succeeds in being educational and entertaining as well as profoundly disturbing."
— David Stratton, The Australian
"A brilliant and captivating documentary about how the art world got converted into a money market"
— Variety
"Frank and authoritative ... Kahn has returned from his trip down the rabbit hole with a clear-eyed and enthralling picture"
— The Sydney Morning Herald

Why You Should See This Film
