The Price of Everything
Directed by Nathaniel Kahn
Description: With unprecedented access to pivotal artists and the white-hot market surrounding them, The Price of Everything dives deep into the contemporary art world, holding a mirror up to our values and our times — where everything can be bought and sold.
Directed by Marie-Cécile Embleton
Description: A poetic portrait of an Iranian watchmaker, whose philosophical musings on craft invite us to reflect on how we engage with time in a fast-paced world. Moving between his colorful pared-down home and the streets and windswept marshes of East London, we discover the horologist’s ascetic and beautiful private world.
2019 PAST FILMS
The Chalkboard Chronicles is a documentary film about a curated art show, which occurred in 1997 in Soho, NYC.
Artist Tom Judd assembled a team of established as well as up-and-coming artists. He created a game where the rules were very simple.
Tom hung 3 chalkboards in the gallery front window of TZ Art at Grand and Wooster Streets. The entire show would be up for 4 weeks. Each week, 3 artists would show up and start work. They each got a chalkboard and some chalk. What they did with those materials was entirely up to them.
