It’s no secret that the contemporary art market is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world. But does the money itself shape the art, rather than vice versa? My Architect director Nathaniel Kahn delivers an in-depth, briskly entertaining study of how works of art become commodities, featuring candid testimonials from top-selling artists like Jeff Koons, collectors and specialists who reap the benefits of this booming market, and others who speculate about when this bubble might pop.
