The Contemporary Art In Modern Times
They say that to be immortal, you must create art. So many books and documentaries have been dedicated to the artists who pioneered what we now know as art. Because art can be extremely relative, and dependent of the viewer’s perspective, contemporary art and its different forms have become controversial in many circles. The term contemporary art is said to have originated as a movement during the post-war era. Contemporary artists are those who created their masterpieces in response to the post-war art movement.
The Origins of American Abstraction
After the war era, abstract expression became the trend. Abstraction is a movement that was initiated by gifted artists who wanted to revolutionize the way the world saw art. During this time, New York became a hub for budding contemporary artists. Some of the best contemporary art pieces are shown in California contemporary art museums.
A pattern can be defined from the way contemporary artists became famous. Because critics were becoming increasingly unrelenting, it is a feat to have one's work recognized as a representative of contemporary art. Contemporary artists of significant acclaim are those who took part in an important exhibit. Usually, the more unique the artist's style is, the more receptive the critics are to his future works. Contemporary art should be something that is unique even to a jaded eye.
Contemporary art can be anything that has made a significant impact in the artistic community from the time the war ended to the present. Early contemporary artists know the pain of creating something and letting their peers critique their creations. Because most contemporary artists treat their art as self-expression, the significance of the acclaim is even more pronounced.
Future Prospects for Modern Artists
Can anyone create a few dots on a canvas and call it art? The evolution of art has opened up doors for talented people who can really stick to their craft, but this kind of change has made the art community more picky about the artists it supports. Many components are considered, including originality, balance and symmetry (or the reason for the lack thereof). It can be a challenge nowadays to become famous doing something you love. Modern artists who can find their own place in the art world and consistently adhere to their own unique style are usually the ones that make it.

Tron Dance from Japan: Homage to to the Modern Body (Juan Cole)
Japan's Wrecking Crew Orchestra performs an innovative light dance in uniforms
like those in the classic science fiction movie Tron. I see the performance as
a celebration of science and technology, of the contemporary moment, and a
rejection of the dead hand of tradition; and I therefore read it as highly
political (see below). This [...]
