THESE ARE POWERS Featured In Art World Docu-Comedy Film To Premiere At Tribeca Film Festival

A “Punk-fueled docu-comedy” that tears the business side of the art world apart – sounds about pitch-perfect for a soundtrack featuring the likes of Peelander-Z, The Willowz and Dead Oceans’ own THESE ARE POWERS. The Brooklyn/Chicago band’s song “Easy Answers” leads the list of songs on the soundtrack to filmmaker Michael Sladek’s “Con Artist,” which was recently selected to premiere at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Sladek spoke with indieWIRE about the film HERE.

A bit about the film: “Part probing documentary, part character-driven black comedy, Con Artist examines themes of art, money, celebrity and fakery through the career of Mark Kostabi. A successful art world pariah, Kostabi rocketed to fame and fortune in the 1980s with a gimmick: to mass-produce and sell thousands of paintings per year, conceived and executed not by himself, but by a revolving stable of hired hands. However, his brazen greed, self-promotion and outrageous lampooning of the art industry eventually caused a remarkable fall from grace.”
