Conceptual (<post-1945 fine arts styles and movements>, <international post-1945 styles and movements>, ... Styles and Periods)

 

Note: Refers broadly to a variety of art created in the 1960s and 1970s. Critiquing the concept of art as commodity, the style is characterized by an emphasis on communicating an idea and the artist's intent, rather than the production of the artwork itself, often including documentation referring to the creation process, such as maps, photographs, and notes. A genre of art in which the ideas or concepts that a work expresses or refers to are considered to be its defining characteristic, and the finished material result, if it exists at all, is regarded primarily as a form of documentation rather than as the art work. The genre emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s, arising at virtually the same time in North America, Europe and Latin America, and helping to inspire the acceptance of nontraditional media such as photographs, architectural drawings and performance art as art of equal status as traditional painting and sculpture. It directly inspired the medium of artists' books as an individual type of art. The term entered common art parlance through an article by Sol LeWitt, "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" published in Artforum in 1967.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 廣義指稱60年代及70年代創作的各類藝術作品。此運動批判藝術商品化的概念,故在風格上側重表達觀念及藝術家意圖,而非創作藝術品本身,作品常包括創作過程相關的文件紀錄,例如地圖、相片以及筆記等。特徵在於作品所表達或涉及的想法或概念,作品成型之後,亦被視為文件記錄的一種形式,而非藝術作品本身。此藝術種類興起於60年代晚期及70年代早期,同時間流行於北美、歐洲及拉丁美洲各地。此藝術推廣非傳統媒材,如攝影、建築製圖及表演藝術等,這些新興媒材因此受到與傳統繪畫及雕塑相等的重視。這個風格更直接啟發藝術家以書籍作為創作媒介,並成為一種特定類型的藝術。在1967年索爾‧勒維特(Sol LeWitt)於《藝術論壇》(Artforum)中發表《觀念藝術短文集》(Paragraphs on Conceptual Art)一文後,這個詞彙開始受藝術界引用。 
Dutch ..... Veelomvattend begrip dat verwijst naar een breed scala van kunstuitingen uit de jaren 60 en 70 van de 20ste eeuw. De stijl levert kritisch commentaar op de kunst als handelswaar. Daarbij staat niet het vervaardigde kunstwerk zelf centraal, maar het overbrengen van een idee en de intentie van de kunstenaar. Vaak gaat het werk vergezeld van documentatie die als toelichting dient bij het ontstaansproces, in de vorm van bijvoorbeeld kaarten, foto's en aantekeningen. Een kunstgenre waarbinnen de ideeën of concepten die een werk uitdrukt of waarnaar het verwijst als wezenlijk worden beschouwd, terwijl het tastbare eindproduct, als dat er al is, hoofdzakelijk wordt gezien als een vorm van documentatie, en dus niet als kunstwerk. Het genre kwam op aan het einde van de jaren 60 en de vroege jaren 70, een proces dat zich vrijwel gelijktijdig voltrok in Noord-Amerika, Europa en Latijns-Amerika. De conceptuele kunst heeft er mede toe bijgedragen dat niet-traditionele media als foto's, bouwtekeningen en performancekunst een gelijkwaardige status verwierven naast de traditionele schilder- en beeldhouwkunst. Mede dankzij de conceptuele kunst worden kunstenaarsboeken nu als volwaardige kunstvorm gezien. De term raakte in zwang na een artikel van Sol LeWitt in het blad Artforum, 'Paragraphs on Conceptual Art', gepubliceerd in 1967. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere ampliamente a una variedad de arte creado en los años sesenta. Criticando el concepto de arte como un artículo, el estilo se caracteriza por un énfasis en comunicar una idea y la intención del artista, en lugar de producir una obra de arte en sí misma, a menudo incluyendo documentación que se refiere al proceso de creación, como mapas, fotografías y notas.
