HBO presents 'Brillo Box (3¢ off)'

In 1969, Lisanne Skyler’s parents bought an Andy Warhol Brillo Box for $1,000. An exact replica of the popular Brillo soap pad package, Warhol’s Brillo boxes were at first dismissed by the art world. Forty years later, in 2010, the same sculpture sold for more than $3 million at auction. Blending personal narrative with pop art history, Brillo Box (3¢ off) follows the sculpture as it makes its way from a New York living room to the global art market, exploring the ephemeral nature of art and value and the decisions that shape family history.

A Q-and-A session will follow the screening.
