Contemporary Conceptualism

About

A particularly broad label for contemporary art in which the ideas regarding the making or meaning of an art object are considered just as important as (or often more important than) the artwork itself. When compared to historical Conceptual Art, contemporary conceptual works more often embrace interdisciplinary approaches, audience participation, or the critique of institutions, political systems, and social and cultural hierarchies. Conceptual works can also often easily be identified with other broad categories, particularly performance art, new media, and installation. In light of recent political upheavals and worldwide economic downturn, the call to social action—which can be embedded in, related to, or merely inferred by an artwork—has become one of the most common characteristics of contemporary conceptual art.
