What makes art "contemporary"?

The term contemporary is, strictly speaking, art created and produced today by artists. Artists today work in a multifaceted, multicultural environment. Contemporary artists are often able to reflect on and make comments about modern society by working in many mediums. Viewers are asked to put aside questions like "Is the work of art worth seeing?" Or "Is it visually pleasing?" Instead, they consider whether art is "challenging" and "interesting." Contemporary artists might question the traditional definitions of art and what art is. They may also challenge existing ideas about how art is made.
Some artists have moved away from the realistic portrayal of the human body and towards abstraction since the beginning of the 20th century. The term "abstract expressionism" was coined in New York City by the art world after World War II to describe an art movement that wasn't entirely abstract or expressionistic. The movement encouraged artists to focus more on the process of creating art than the finished product. Jackson Pollock, an artist who dripped paint in spontaneous but grand gestures, took art-making to new heights. One critic said that the canvas was an arena for acting--"what was happening on the canvas wasn't a picture, but an event." The movement abstract expression was a major influence on the notion of art as an actual event. It continues to inspire artists today.

The postmodern movement is a group of contemporary artists who reject mainstream art and embrace "artistic pluralism," which allows for acceptance of different artistic styles and intentions. Contemporary artists draw from a wide range of sources and styles, whether they are influenced or grounded in performance, Pop Art, Minimalism or conceptual art. It is therefore difficult to accurately and concisely describe the variety of materials and concepts used by contemporary artists. This overview highlights the work of a few contemporary artists, as well as the concepts they explore.
