The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) is pleased to present the exhibition CIRCA 1986, from September 18, 2011 through July 2012 with opening reception on Sunday, September 18, 2011, from 4 to 7pm. 'CIRCA 1986 - The '80s from Six Important New York Art Collections' shows 70 artworks from more than 40 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 6 New York based couples who, over much of the past 50 years, spent considerable effort building important art collections, each independent of advisors each extremely diligent and each original. The exhibition was curated by John Newsom (New York based painter), Nicola Trezzi (US editor of Flash Art International), and Astrid Honold (Director of OFFICE For Contemporary Art, Amsterdam). "A richly illustrated catalogue includes excerpts from discussions with the collectors selected by Astrid Honold as well as essays by curators Nicola Trezzi and John Newsom. The foreword is contributed by HVCCA Board Chairman, Marc Straus. IMAGE: Jeff Koons Two Ball 50/50 Tank (Spalding Dr. J Silver Series, Wilson Supershot), 1985.
