The price of Everything ———- A good watch
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 #JeffKoons , #GerhardRichter and #NjidekaAkunyiliCrosby , to one-time art star #LarryPoons , 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.

Larry Poons ...
I had no idea who Larry Poons was until I watched the new art documentary by film maker Nathaniel Kahn.
"The Price of Everything"
A fascinating look at contemporary art market . Like every good block buster there is usually a hero to save the day and abstract painter Larry Poons fills that role .
A must watch for any contemporary art fan or collector. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Larry Poons’s “Sudden Feral,” 2017,
part of the artist’s solo exhibition “Momentum,” on view at @yaresart through November 4, 2017 #LarryPoons#Repost @flagartfoundation ・・・

It helps when the parcels sourced are kimmeridgian marl, silex, and chalky portlandian soils.

“The Price of Everything” directed by Nathaniel Kahn. • A truly extraordinary documentary on the world of contemporary art of today that left me in tears by the end. The film follows several dealers, artists, collectors and curators throughout to give you a full scope of the fascinating, mind-blowing and over the top world of contemporary art. Just released on HBO.
When I was a kid, I learned about Larry Poons (and so many other important NYC artists) from this book, “New York: The New Art Scene” (1967). I was mesmerized by Ugo Mulas’s sumptuous photographs, and read over and over again the excellent texts by Alan Solomon. The design of the book by Michele Provinciali made it feel like a series of studio visits around the city. I recently watched the new art market documentary, “The Price of Everything,” and it reminded me of this book, especially the last photo I’ve posted here, which shows Larry Poons looking past the viewer, cigarette either ready to shoot from his fingers or divining the location of his next “dot” on a canvas. I think we can all learn a lot from Larry Poon’s life and work. If you watch the documentary (I recommend it!) you’ll see what I mean. Or maybe you’ll disagree. His life has not been glamorous. He’s given everything to his work and laughs when he says some people thought he had died years ago. He never stopped evolving or refusing to compromise. He’s difficult and lovable. The other reason to watch is to see and hear @jerrysaltz preach the truth, namely that “an artist must make an enemy of envy.” War and selflessness—if there’s a better description of art-making, I don’t know it. #larrypoons#jerrysaltz#ugomulas#alansolomon#micheleprovinciali#marcelduchamp#artbook#nyc#nychistory#arthistory#thepriceofeverything#artists
Some wise words from Larry Poons...an artist who is featuring in "The Price of Everything" I came across this great article yesterday. My #gratitude30 photo challenge is "technology." I love that I have daily inspiration at my fingertips.
