The Price of Everything

The Price of Everything

Coming to Cinemas 7 March 2019

Sundance Grand Jury Prize-nominated documentary examining the dynamics at play in pricing blue chip art pieces.

"Basquiat paintings regularly fetch tens of millions of dollars, and the recent sale of a little-known Da Vinci topped $450 million — but what forces are driving the white-hot art market? Who assigns and who pays these astronomical sums? What currency adequately measures art’s value? The Price of Everything leads us into a rarefied labyrinth of galleries, studios, and auction houses to wrestle with these questions and explore what society loses and gains when art becomes a rich person’s commodity."
