We are pleased to present The Fralin Downtown, a film series on the Arts, screened at the Violet Crown and funded by an Arts Enhancement grant from the Office of the Provost and the Vice Provost for the Arts.
The Price of Everything
Directed by Nathaniel Kahn
Starring Jeff Koons, Jeffrey Deitch
Rated NR | Runtime 1 hours & 38 minutes
Exploring the labyrinth of the contemporary art world, The Price of Everything examines the role of art and artistic passion in today’s money-driven, consumer-based society. Featuring collectors, dealers, auctioneers and a rich range of artists, from current market darlings Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter and Njideka Akunyili Crosby, to one-time art star Larry Poons, the film exposes deep contradictions as it holds a mirror up to contemporary values and times, coaxing out the dynamics at play in pricing the priceless.
Presented in partnership with The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia.
