Circa 1986 Catalog

Circa 1986

65 Artworks by 47 Artists – important in a momentous decade: 1981 – 1991

September 18, 2011 – July 22, 2012 @ Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art

Circa 1986 is curated by John Newsom, New York based painter, Nicola Trezzi, ‘Flash Art International’ US Editor, and Astrid Honold, Director at Office for Contemporary Art Amsterdam (OFCA).  The exhibition shows 65 artworks by 47 international artists who emerged with significant artworks in the extremely prosperous and exciting period between 1981 and 1991. The exhibition attempts to capture a decade, a momentous game changing time that started in a rush and ended with the collapse of the art market. It is seen from the perspective of six New York based couples who, over much of the 50 years, spent considerable effort building important art collections, each independent of advisors each extremely diligent and each original.

“Circa 1986” artists include: Gregory Amenoff, Richard Artschwager, Ashley Bickerton, Ross Bleckner, Christian Boltanski, Jonathan Borofsky, James Brown, Sarah Charlesworth, Clegg & Guttmann, Walter Dahn, Jiri Georg Dokoupil, Moira Dryer, John Duff, Nancy Dwyer, Barbara Ess, R.M. Fischer, Gilbert & George, Robert Gober, Antony Gormley, Dieter Hacker, Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, Roni Horn, Mike Kelley, Anselm Kiefer, Win Knowlton, Jeff Koons, Paul Laster, Sherrie Levine, Robert Mapplethorpe, Allan McCollum, Mark Morrisroe, Elizabeth Murray, Bruce Nauman, Joel Otterson, Rona Pondick, Richard Prince, Rick Prol, David Robbins, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., David Row, Julian Schnabel, Peter Schuyff, Mike & Doug Starn, Jessica Stockholder, John Walker, David Wojnarowicz.

The Power Of Place Catalog

The Power Of Place

January 27, 2013 – April 28, 2013 @ Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art

Curated by Marc & Livia Straus, founders HVCCA Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art is proud to present this exhibition of works by members of the Peekskill Artist Club, a group of emerging artists who have been meeting monthly at HVCCA for dialogue and critique, eager to continue the growth found through discourse that characterized their time in art school. Though disparate in style and artistic medium, varied in aesthetics, gallery representation and years of artistic practice, they share a common passion to engage with their peers and improve. The Peekskill Artist Club had its first meeting in May of 2010, bringing together a group of artists from throughout the region. With the knowledge that Livia and Marc Straus had helped establish a similar group in Manhattan, several artists appealed to HVCCA as a venue. The idea was certainly congruous with HVCCA’s mission to enable emerging artists, foster creative growth and experimental projects, as well as to help establish the reputation of the Hudson Valley as a place for serious and important contemporary art. Growing through invitations from current members, the group’s size has swelled as artists continue to migrate to the idyllic Hudson Valley. Attracted to the area for different reasons, whether to raise families or to escape the city and breathe the air of a more rural environment, these artists convene here to create their own artistic community. Some artists come from Peekskill, but also from the greater geographic area, from New Paltz to Beacon and even as far as Rhinebeck and Connecticut, to take advantage of this group of peers who are facing similar struggles, attempting to navigate the art world and find their place within it. Over this two and a half year period, their work has expanded and morphed, gaining from group critique and constructive self-analysis. This exhibition is a culmination of this period of their time together, a step along the path to greater artistic development, self-knowledge and creativity.

“The Power Of Place” artist’s include: Gulgun Aliriza, Emil Alzamora, Cristina Alvarez Arnold, Matthew Arnold, Andrew Barthelmes, Katrina Ellis, Geoff Feder, Philip Hardy, Katherine Mangiardi, James Mulvaney, Adam Niklewicz, Jason Repolle, shara Shisheboran, Timothy Smith, Ken Vallario, Michael Zelehoski
