Transcript of Conceptual Art

2.Conceptual art
is art in which the
concept
(s) or
idea
(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns.
Conceptualism began in the first half of the
c20th
. Not as an artisitic movement but as a philosophy. As a questioning of what was taken for granted. The work of the
Dadaists
is fundamentally conceptualist.
The conceptual art of
Duchamp
and other early practitioners like
Yves Klein
and
Piero Manzoni
had a subversive impact by
testing the limits of what buyers and institutions would accept as art.
""In conceptual art
the idea or concept
is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair.
The idea becomes a machine that makes the art
.""
CONCEPTUAL
Sol LeWitt
(1928 – 2007)

was an American artist linked to various movements, including Conceptual art and Minimalism.
This method was fundamental to American artist
Sol LeWitt
's definition of Conceptual art, one of the first to appear in print:
WHAT IS
ART?
1.Conceptual art
focuces on the
idea
or
concept
of the artwork, rather than the materials or methods.
Sol LeWitt’s conceptual artworks



Art
normally behaves as s statement.
"This is a portrait of Mona Lisa"
but

Duchamps' readymade
is posed as a question or challenge
It questions the meaning of art itself.
The work of
Marcel Duchamp
, in particular, is fundamentally conceptualist: Duchamp argued that
the idea of a work matters more than its physical representation.
HOW THE MOVEMENT
WAS INFLUENCED BY
SOCIOPOLITICAL
FACTORS
(1928-1962)
(1933-1963)
The conceptual artists who came out of the 1960s were more concerned with the philosophical implications of deconstructing a work of art to its barest essence,
drawing insipiration from the theories of Martin Heidegger and Ludwig Wittgenstein.
One of the most important precedents for Conceptual art was the work of
Dada
artist
Marcel Duchamp
Established the idea of the
"Readymade"
- the found object that is simply nominated or chosen by the artist to be a work of art.
Fountain (1917) - nothing more than a porcelain urinal, reoriented ninety degrees, placed on a stand and signed and dated under the alias "R. Mutt."

Material
is not necessary
for conceptual art.

Conceptual art is about the idea;
idea is art
.

Conceptual art is often found with the minimal amount of material used.

Some artists confuse new materials with new ideas.

Particular Conceptual artists use language and surrounds (installation)
"Can this urinal be an artwork?"
The aim of
The aim of conceptual art
is to make a viewer
think cognitively
and understanding that the art present is not about the aesthetics of it, but the
creative and reflective progress
. Art is not just about what the final outcome is or what out of,
but the message behind it; the idea.

conceptual
when was
the movement
taking place
?
In 1968, in New York, conceptual art was promoted by a series of exhibitions put together by the dealer and curator Seth Siegelaub.
Before Conceptualism

came about there was Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Dada, Pop, Fluxus, and Minimalism. All of these movements led into the movement of conceptual art.
The most famous of Duchamp's readymades was Fountain (1917), a standard urinal basin signed by the artist with the pseudonym "R.Mutt", and submitted for inclusion in the exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists in New York.

"The world is full of objects ,
more or less interesting; I do
not wish to add ant more"
Douglas HUEBLER
Generally strives to explore the nature of part art rather
than producing what is traditionally called "art"
In traditional terms, a commonplace object such as a urinal
cannot be said to be art
because it is not made by an artist or with any intention of being art, nor is it unique or hand-crafted.
