Between the Frames is a series that offers a glimpse into contemporary history that is already past, a portrait of personalities and opinions shaping what and how art reaches a public forum.

The Dealers: Between the Frames, Chapter 1 and The Galleries: Between the Frames, Chapter 3

Between the Frames begins when art goes to market. Chapters 1 and 3, which focus on major U.S. and European dealers and galleries, are integrated into a single video. The dealers and gallerists appear in talking-head format, discussing their roles, values, markets, networks, fashions, and audiences. The speakers—including Lucio Amelio, Daniel Templon, Ronald Feldman, Leo Castelli, Richard Kuhlenschmidt, Ivan Karp, and Holly Solomon, Ileana Sonnabend, Mario Diacono, Rodolphe Stadler, Michel Durand-Dessert, Joan de Muga, Marisa Díez, Glenn Lewis, Marian Goodman, Richard Bellamy, Rosamund Felsen, Joy Silverman, Mary Boone, Helen Winer, and Al Nodal—are not identified until the end of the video, and their voices are recorded in native languages without subtitles. The interviews are connected with images shot from the Vancouver Skytrain, an automated transit system that was newly finished when Muntadas shot the footage.
