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.
