This generous volume also includes never-before-published archival photographs from the Sonnabend Archive; an interview with Germano Celant about his friendship with Ileana Sonnabend and the global dissemination of Arte Povera; texts written by the artists in the exhibition; and extensive bibliographies for each artist, the Sonnabend galleries, and the Arte Povera movement, respectively.
