Event description

Description

In 1969, film director Lisanne Skyler's parents bought an Andy Warhol Brillo Box for $1,000. Inspired by the popular Brillo soap pad product package, Warhol’s Brillo Boxes were not initially embraced by the market. Forty years later, the same sculpture once owned by Skyler’s parents sold for over $3,000,000 at a record-breaking Christie’s auction. Blending humorous family narrative with anecdotes from the Pop Art era, Brillo Box (3¢ Off), follows the sculpture as it makes its way from the Skyler’s living room to the contemporary global art market, exploring the ephemeral nature of art, value and the decisions that shape family history.

Lisanne Skyler and Barrett White, Executive Deputy Chairman, Post-War and Contemporary Art at Christie’s, will do a Q&A session following the film.

Lisanne Skyler is a writer and director of numerous, award-winning fiction and documentary films exploring economic systems and their impact on our lives. In addition to the HBO Documentary Film, Brillo Box (3¢ Off), her films include the critically acclaimed Joyce Carol Oates adaptation Getting To Know You, and the South Central, Los Angeles documentary No Loans Today. Skyler lives and works in Tucson, Arizona where she is a member of the faculty of the University of Arizona School of Theatre, Film and Television.

Barrett White is an Executive Deputy Chairman for the Post-War & Contemporary Art Department at Christie’s, focusing on business development and private sales. Since joining Christie’s in 1999, White has held senior positions in the Post-War and Contemporary Art Department and Christie’s subsidiary Haunch of Venison. He was also formerly the Senior Director at L+M Arts in New York. White has a BA in Art History from New York University and a MA in the history of the art market from Christie’s Education.
