Tuesday, February 12
7:00 p.m. The Price of Everything
Director:Nathanial Kahn
(98 min)

What is it about the contemporary art market that holds us mere mortals in thrall? How and why can a shiny, metallic balloon-animal dog sell for $58.4 million, as Jeff Koons’ original did in 2013? Why is some contemporary art now worth 10 times more than what it fetched at auction only 10 or 15 years ago? Kahn seems to have had unlimited access to the billionaire players pushing up prices as well as the behind-the-scenes skullduggery that hypes some artists and suppresses others, and the picture he paints—sometimes cynical, sometimes upbeat—captures the crazy spirit of this crazy time.
