Contemporary Art

Contemporary art is the art of today, produced in
the second half of the 20th century or in the 21st
century. Contemporary artists work in a globally
influenced, culturally diverse, and technologically
advancing world. Their art is a dynamic
combination of materials, methods, concepts,
and subjects that continue the challenging of
boundaries that was already well underway in the
20th century. Diverse and eclectic, contemporary
art as a whole is distinguished by the very lack of
a uniform, organising principle, ideology, or “-
ism”. Contemporary art is part of a cultural
dialogue that concerns larger contextual
frameworks such as personal and cultural
identity, family, community, and nationality.
