Well-researched and expertly constructed, Barry Avrich’s eye-opening documentary peels back the layers of the art world economy – from production to circulation, and delineates every integral player in the game of art-making, including curators, gallerists, collectors, donors, auction houses, and… artists. In the process, he unpacks the complex and surprising ecosystem that supports the art world superstars and million-dollar deals that make front-page news. Featuring extraordinary access to industry players and candid statements from prominent artists like Damien Hirst, Julian Schnabel, Taryn Simon, and Marina Abramovic, Blurred Lines collides the two narratives of the art world as both above and beholden to market forces.
Barry Avrich is an acclaimed filmmaker responsible for over 35 titles including The Last Mogul, Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project (2011), An Unlikely Obsession: Churchill & the Jews (2011). Avrich has produced and directed successful stage-to-screen adaptations of Shakespeare productions with The Stratford Festival, including Hamlet and The Tempest with Christopher Plummer.
