Contemporary Artwork and its meaning

What do we mean by contemporary art? The work of a contemporary artist is to portray the current era. This kind of art is based on something that is related to the current lifestyle.

There is a lot of difference between modern art and contemporary art. While the word ‘Modern’ seems to relate as of today, that is not the case. These kind of art can be related somewhere from 1880 until early 1970s, while contemporary art began somewhere during early 1970s until the current day. So, any art which has taken place after 1970 is considered as contemporary art. The main reason why the year 1970 is used as a cut off period between a Modern art and a contemporary art is because it was during this period that terms like Postmodern and Postmodernism began to gain popularity. Apart from that it was during the 1970s that the artist’s movements took place.

In case you are planning to purchase contemporary art from any art gallery, it is very important to measure the size of your room where you will prefer to display the art. Remember, these kinds of artwork can range from different sizes. The theme of the artwork is equally important before selecting to purchase a contemporary artwork. The artwork comes in different kinds of forms, colors and is made from different types of materials. Not only in the form of painting; this kind of artwork also come in the form of a sculpture or a collage or even something else. In addition to it, the artwork also deals with different subjects.
