The Sonnabend Collection

Remai Modern presents The Sonnabend Collection. Developed through the vision of influential art dealer Ileana Sonnabend (1914-2007) her husband Michael Sonnabend (1900-2001), and their adopted son Antonio Homem, the Collection is among the most significant private holdings of modern and contemporary art in the world.

Through their galleries in Paris and New York, the Sonnabends established an international presence, fostering creative exchanges and new audiences for American artists in Europe and vice versa. Often, they championed artists early in their careers. They anticipated and influenced developments in art including Pop, Minimalism, Conceptualism, Nouveau Réalisme, Arte Povera, Neo-Expressionism, Neo-Geo, Photo Conceptualism and beyond. Above all, they believed deeply in artists.

The Sonnabend Collection at Remai Modern features over 100 works by 68 artists, spanning seven decades of artistic production. This will be the Collection’s first exposure in Canada, and its most comprehensive presentation to date in North America.
