As the finest works of our age become the playthings of the ultra-rich, how do we define the value of art?

Headlines blare the latest obscene price paid for an artwork, sold to nameless bidders, who squirrel them away in high-security warehouses. The eternal question ‘What is art?’ is now answered in nine-figure sums.

Academy Award-nominated director Nathaniel Kahn (My Architect) lifts the veil on this rarefied world, investigating money, talent, markets and the artistic mind. Kahn talks to a colourful cast of experts, including materialistic megastar Jeff Koons, Sotheby’s diamond doyen Amy Cappellazzo, and rebel abstract painter Larry Poons.

In between the bean-counting dealers and cashed-up collectors, we discover that all too often the ‘richest’ artists and the gallery-going public are the ones missing out.

 

"Kahn, best known for the 2003 confessional portrait of himself and his father, “My Architect,” has conceived the film in a way that’s at once journalistic and philosophical. “The Price of Everything” is an exposé that’s also a freewheeling meditation on what art is." Variety

"easily accessible to non-insiders and holds interest even for those who follow art closely." The Hollywood Reporter
