A collection of work by 80 artists who explore the contemporary art world’s fundamental concerns of value, markets, and the business of art

Grounded in the global, conceptual art tendencies that began in the 1960s, For What It’s Worth looks at artists who generate, question, and infect value systems through their work. These works address issues vital to the art world connected to systems of exchange, social structures, or metacritiques of the market – and all stops in between. Central to this assembly are works from the famed Rachofsky Collection by Judy Chicago, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Annette Lawrence, Seung-taek Lee, Sherrie Levine, Piero Manzoni, Bruce Nauman, Giulio Paolini, Sherrill Roland, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Fred Wilson, and Yukinori Yanagi.
