American Art, 1970 to Present

  1. 1. Art Since 1970 <ul><li>postmodernism : a reaction against modernist formalism , seen as elitist . Far more encompassing and accepting than the more rigid confines of modernist practice, postmodernism offers something for everyone by accommodating a wide range of styles, subjects, and formats, from traditional easel painting to installation and from abstraction to illusionism . Postmodern art often includes irony or reveals a self-conscious awareness on the part of the artist of art-making processes or the workings of the art world. </li></ul><ul><li>-from Gardner’s Art Through the Ages </li></ul>http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v =QdO9orWQ-Nk
