Record Type: concept
Contemporary (style of art) (<styles, periods, and cultures by general era>, Styles and Periods (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Period and styles of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and architecture dating from the recent past and present. It differs from modern art in that the term 'Contemporary art' does not carry the implication of a non-traditional style, but instead refers only to the time period in which the work was created. 'Modern' and 'Contemporary' are inherently fluid terms. The term 'Contemporary' is sometimes more narrowly used to refer to art from ca. 1960 or 1970 up to the present. To refer to the current time period without reference to style of art, use "contemporary (generic time frame)".

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar schilderijen, beeldhouwwerken, grafische kunst en architectuur die in het recente verleden of het heden zijn vervaardigd. Het verschil met moderne kunst is dat de term 'hedendaagse kunst' niet de betekenis van een niet-traditionele stijl in zich draagt, maar uitsluitend verwijst naar de periode waarin een werk is gemaakt. De begrippen 'modern' en 'hedendaags' zijn dan ook impliciet aan verandering onderhevig. Het woord 'hedendaags' wordt soms in specifiekere zin gebruikt om de kunst tussen circa 1960 of 1970 tot het heden aan te duiden. Om de huidige tijdsperiode aan te duiden zonder relatie tot een kunststijl, gebruik 'hedendaags (generieke tijdsspanne)'. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere a la pintura, escultura, artes gráficas y arquitectura desarrolladas desde el siglo XIX hasta el presente y se caracteriza por rechazar las formas de arte tradicional y convencional. Es típico reflejo de cambio social, económico e intelectual. El arte moderno incluye numerosas teorías y moviemientos. Se diferencia del arte contemporáneo, que no implica un estilo no tradicional, sino que por el contrario se refiere solamente al período en el cual el trabajo fue creado. Moderno y contemporáneo son intrínsecamente términos fluídos. El término moderno esta más estrechamente referido al arte realizado hasta los años 60 o los años 70.
