Off the canvas a documentary profiling 9 maverick New York women art dealers ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Off the Canvas" [OTC] strips the gallery façade and invites the public into the seductive, obsessive, and demanding world of art dealing. We go behind the scenes to witness nine maverick New York women dealers in action. Stories of their success, frustration, and resilience are told from artists, collectors and peers. Each dealer followed a different path that led to this profession. Just as unique as these paths taken, so are their approaches to the actual dealing. OTC reveals how and when these women began discovering artists, curating shows and finding collectors who would ultimately support their visions. OTC preserves the untold stories of Mary Boone, Paula Cooper, Barbara Gladstone, Marian Goodman, Annina Nosei, Andrea Rosen, Holly Solomon, Ileana Sonnabend and Virginia Zabriskie, who ultimately paved the way for major contemporary artists and collectors

During a career spanning half a century, Ileana Sonnabend (1914-2007) helped shape the course of postwar art in Europe and America. Both a gallerist and a noted collector, Sonnabend championed some of the most significant art movements of her time. Artists as varied as Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Mel Bochner, Jeff Koons, Mario Merz, Robert Morris, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol worked with Sonnabend, whose support for difficult avant-garde work was legendary. Among the many important works that Sonnabend owned is Rauschenberg's painting, Canyon (1959), which the Sonnabend family generously donated to The Museum of Modern Art in 2012. In celebration of this extraordinary gift, Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the new accompanies an exhibition exploring her legendary eye through approximately 30 works presented in her eponymous galleries in Paris and New York from the early 1960s through the late 1980s. A biographical essay by Leslie Camhi, artists' recollections and individual entries on the selected works provide further reflection on Sonnabend's taste and lasting influence.
