Enjoy a screening of The Price of Everything, part of our Fall 2022 Muscarelle Explorations series!

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. With unprecedented access to pivotal artists and the market surrounding them, this film dives deep into the contemporary art world, holding a mirror up to our values and our times – where everything can be bought and sold. Nominated at both the Sundance Film Festival and News and Documentary Emmy Awards, The Price of Everything was directed by Nathaniel Kahn.
