Modern Art

“Modern art” is a vague term that can be used purely chronologically to designate any art produced in the twentieth century. There is no general agreement on when “modern art” started and ended. The beginnings of modern art usually attributed to the first two decades of the 20th century, a period that saw the birth of Cubism, Expressionism, and Fauvism. LatamArt will consider the 1960s and 1970s the end of modern art. More precisely, to LatamArt, “modern art” ended with the birth of Conceptual art in the late 1960s. In general, the main characteristics of “modern art” were the relative devaluation of tradition and traditional skills; a departure from the consensus about reality and appearance, and an attempt to make common cause with design and architecture.
