press release

The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) is pleased to announce the opening of Nostalgia, an exhibition addressing the idea of reminiscence, melancholy and longing, and the subtlety and depth of this unique emotion. Nostalgia features work by nine artists: Ann Hamilton (US), Mona Hatoum (Lebanon), Justen Ladda (Germany/US), Julian LaVerdiere (US), Matvey Levenstein (US), Luca Stoppini (Italy), Claire Woods (UK), Dustin Yellin (US) and Cristof Yvor (France). This group includes some of the most renowned artists today: Anne Hamilton, who represented the US in the Venice Biennale (1999) and younger artists who are emerging internationally, such as Clare Woods.

Exhibition curator Carmen Zita writes, “The most valuable things that we carry with us are our memories the only possessions that we cannot lose, take away or forget. Therefore, nostalgia is the most personal sentiment; one that cannot be easily shared like love, hate or disappointment. The selection of works by these artists illustrates the uniquely personal aspect of nostalgia.”
