ART movement

Following on from modern art, contemporary art embodies all artistic production to have emerged since 1945. This movement breaks away from modernism and traditional aesthetic principles. Numerous trends have emerged from it, such as conceptual art, new realism, land art and pop art. Contemporary art remains inextricably linked with new realism, which appeared at the start of the 1960s. This movement brought together a group of artists offering a singular perception of reality. The artists exploit novel techniques, creating their works from everyday objects, veritable symbols of the consumer society: car parts, clothing, rubbish, etc. A contemporary movement, conceptual art stands out in that it places the concept back at the heart of the creation: rather than art being considered as an object, it is the idea that reigns supreme in the final result. Like new realism, pop art draws inspiration from mass culture and western society, borrowing from the codes of the comic strip, advertising and cinema. This form of contemporary art, which first emerged in Great Britain, is synonymous with the works of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Richard Hamilton, among others. Land art refers to ephemeral works produced using natural materials, entirely subject to the action of time.
