ANN: “DRIVEN TO ABSTRACTION” a feature documentary by Daria Price Hamptons Doc Fest Monday, Dec 9 At 2PM plus Q&A Bay Street Cinema, Sag Harbor, New York

This feature documentary explores a fifteen-year scandal that began in New York City and rippled through the international art world, leaving the reputations and bank accounts of art dealers, collectors, and experts shattered. Widely covered by the press over the years, Driven to Abstraction goes deeper, dissecting the tall tales and the abstract expressionist hoax that eventually brought the Knoedler Gallery to an abrupt and shocking end. Participants include journalists from The New York Times, Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, The Art Newspaper, Artnet News, Robb Report, as well as witnesses, attorneys, and art dealers and advisors from the De Sole v. Ann Freedman/Knoedler trial.
