Conceptual Art

circa (1960-1970)

 

Conceptual art is art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns. It attempted to free art from the confines of the gallery and the pedestal.Many of the works, sometimes called installations, may be constructed by anyone simply by following a set of written instructions. At inception in the 1960s, the term referred to a strict and focused practice of idea-based art, which, in its presentation as text, often defied traditional visual criteria associated with the visual arts. However, through its association with the Young British Artists and the Turner Prize during the 1990s, in popular usage, particularly in the UK, "conceptual art" came to denote all contemporary art that does not practice the traditional skills of painting and sculpture. To address this common confusion, it might be said that one of the reasons why the term "conceptual art" has come to be associated with various contemporary practices far removed from its original aims and formal properties, might be a problem defining the term itself. The French artist Marcel Duchamp paved the way for the conceptualists, providing them with examples of prototypically conceptual works -- the readymades, for instance.
