You better believe that the art world is a wild, lawless place run by unconventional people, all of who are called out in The Price of Everything, a new documentary about the art market coming to U.S. theatres this fall.
The film interviews Jerry Saltz, Marilyn Minter and Jeff Koons on fame, fortune and snobbery. Also expect quotes from George Condo, the artist who has collaborated with Kanye West.

One auctioneer says that good art has to be expensive, while others in the film say money has devalued art. One painter, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, says it’s not about money.
“Art and money has always gone hand in hand,” and “99% of artists have no money,” are two voices in the film. Want to see more?
