Description

This Hot Docs hit is an all-access pass into the contemporary art world. Modern art pieces from established names can go for what seems like absurd amounts of money, accessible only to the elite. Assessing the value of a work of art in both cultural and monetary terms is tricky territory that calls into question what we view and accept as art to begin with and how we commodify said value in our capitalist society. Filmmaker Barry Avrich takes you around the globe to auctions, museums, art openings and talks to experts and the artists themselves—including Marina Abramovic and Julian Schnabel—about this unregulated economic system and what it reveals.
