Contemporary Art

Home / Contemporary Art

“Contemporary art” is also a broad term and usually imprecise term. Thus, LatamArt will distinguish “contemporary art” from “modern art” based on the ending of the latter, which happened around the time Conceptual art began in the late 1960s. Notably, the late 1960s was the time when the “modern art” “isms” -e.g., Cubism, Expressionism, and Fauvism- that designated groups of artists united by style, ideology, and, usually social, and professional ties gave way to broader thematic categories, traditionally determined by the critics.
