The Price of Everything (Nathaniel Kahn, Jennifer Stockman, Carla Solomon, Debi Wisch)

Can the value of art really be measured in dollars and cents? How are these values assigned and who assigns them? Does the art market have a chilling effect on our great museums and the ability of the public to engage in the art of our time? Most importantly, what does this new consumerist approach to art mean for artists themselves? The Price of Everything explores these questions and demystifies the rarefied world of contemporary art in a dynamic and entertaining way.
