Circa 1986

Location: HVCCA

Dates: September 18 2011 - July 22, 2012

Between 1981 and 1991, some properly significant artists emerged in a prosperous art market. Among them are names you know, like Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, and others that should ring a bell. Circa 1986 won us over not as a retrospective of a time, but as a strong selection of key objects from key collectors. As such, items important to owner (regardless of art historical significance or auction price) played a part… allowing us entry into a distinct moment in New York's art world.
