Conceptual Art


Works in which the idea, planning, and production process are more important than the result. The term gained currency in the 1960s as a result of Sol LeWitt’s 1967 article "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" in Artforum. Conceptual art can take many forms, including, most frequently, descriptions and seemingly objective photographic documentation. The use of Conceptualism in contemporary practice is often referred to as Contemporary Conceptualism.
