What makes art “good”? What makes art “valuable”? To whom does art belong? NCMA Director Valerie Hillings leads a conversation with area college students following a presentation of the HBO documentary The Price of Everything.
The Price of Everything
(2018) Directed by Nathaniel Kahn. (98 min.) DCP.
“Some people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” This documentary spotlights the fast-paced, deeply flawed world of commercial art and the artists, curators, and dealers who occupy it. Balancing themes of creation and consumerism, The Price of Everything asks insightful questions about what makes art great and, in the end, who cares about it?
