Presentation Transcript

  1. Conceptual Art • (not concept art)

  2. What is it? • Artwork in which the ideas behind the art are more important than the traditional aesthetic and material concerns of the actual artwork.

  3. When?

  4. Conceptual Artists • They don’t set out to make a painting or sculpture and then fit their ideas to that existing form. • They think beyond the traditional media restrictions and then work out their ideas using whatever material is appropriate to that idea.

  5. Artists use available elements of expression to show political, social, and technological subjects. The view and sometimes the artist herself is an integral part of the art and its basic concept.

  6. Marcel Duchamp • Was a Dada artist who set the stage for conceptual art with his ‘readymade’ pieces.
