In the presence of Catherine DiNapoli.

A witty satire on the art world of today. The New York gallerist (Marley Shelton) has a passion for creativity but also an understanding for what sells. The modern composer (Adam Goldberg) has creativity, the abstract painter (Eion Bailey) is a great seller... for the offices of doctors and lawyers. An artist's value grows as soon as he is dead. Collectors keep their valuable artworks in storage. A lot of fun from Jonathan Parker and Catherine DiNapoli who clearly love art.
