The Price of Everything: An Art World Odyssey

Cavalier Gallery is pleased to announce Larry Poons' featured in the Sundance nominated Documentary The Price of Everything, directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Nathaniel Kahn. Chronicling the role, dealers, auctioneers, and artists hold in weaving together the art worlds cultural and commercial tapestry, the film also features interviews with the likes of Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and Larry Poons.

The Price of Everything explores the unanswered questions and demystifies the rarefied world of contemporary art in a dynamic and entertaining way. With unprecedented access to artists, dealers, collectors and auction houses, the film takes us deep into a hidden world where nothing is what it seems. In revealing scenes and interviews, we come to understand how the art market actually works and we confront the challenges of being an artist in the current environment— where success can come at lightning speed, only to evaporate next season, and where even the most revered creators must find ways to block out the temptations of the market if they wish to remain in control of their creative process.

The Price of Everything offers a complex portrait of a late capitalist society confronting itself. While holding a funhouse mirror up to our consumerist culture, the film ultimately reaffirms the transcendent power of art itself and the deep need we have for it in our lives.

The Price of Everything will premier at Sundance Film Festival, Friday, January 19, 2018 in Park City, Utah. The film has also been acquired by HBO Productions and will be screened in theaters nationwide.
