With the availability of the internet and high speed communications, contemporary artists have access to a very big range of cultures and communities and their works can be exposed to the public very easily. As a result, relationships to place, people, ideas and geography have been revised and developed. This continues to be explored and developed.
Developed from Postmodern art which was a successor of Modern Art (Modern Art -> Postmodern Art -> Contemporary Art)
In English, contemporary and modern are synonyms so people confuse these two periods of art easily.
Postmodern art's characteristics were quite similar to contemporary art and it was the stage that connected modern and contemporary art.
