New Documentary Paints A Picture Of The Contemporary Art Market Run Amok

Abstract artist Larry Poons is enjoying a late-career resurgence of interest, decades after his optical dot paintings attracted acclaim in the 1960s. Poons is a key figure in the documentary The Price of Everything.

HBO’s The Price of Everything calls into question the current price explosion and commodification of modern art “that’s fascinating, but it’s also terrifying,” says director Nathaniel Kahn.
