Lot description
The offerings from this auction were shown as part of Peekskill Project V, an initiative of the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA), in support of talented young artists as they move forward in their careers.

As a citywide festival of Contemporary Art, Peekskill Project is devoted to bringing cutting edge contemporary art out of the museum and into the community. Using the city as a stage, Peekskill Project activates the urban environment and its inhabitants through site-specific art exhibitions, performances and screenings by emerging and established artists selected by a juried committee of renowned curators.

The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, located in Peekskill, NY, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts and education organization founded in 2004. The Center is dedicated to the development and presentation of exhibitions and interdisciplinary programs that enrich our understanding of contemporary art and its relationship to social issues. Operating a 12,000 square foot exhibition space, HVCCA is also committed to the enrichment of Peekskill, a multicultural community that has recreated itself as a major arts destination. Some 120 artists who have now gained renown, had their first showings at the HVCCA.

DANIEL ROBERTS
[b. 1984, Corvallis, OR]
Lives and works in Long Island City, NY

I work in forgotten spaces, abandoned homes, factories, low tide on the East River—here objects get left behind. I’ve worked with spaces in Detroit, in New York—people forget things, places age, an object loses its value—gets lost. I work with what people once cared for, a feeling that now stands as an opposite testament to absolute abandonment—a strange fusion of past identity and apathy. In this mix lies a true portrait, a portrait to reflect on flaw and failure and age.
