With unprecedented access to pivotal artists and the white-hot market surrounding them, The Price of Everything dives deep into the contemporary art world, holding a mirror up to our values and our times–where everything can be bought and sold. (Rotten Tomatoes)

“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.” (Sundance Film Festival)

It’s rare to get such a frank and authoritative view of the market and its flaws. Kahn has returned from his trip down the rabbit hole with a clear-eyed and enthralling picture of what he found there. Sydney Morning Herald
