Contest Rules

Conceptual Masterpieces
Post your best 'Conceptual' artwork. Paintings, Drawings and Sculptures are accepted for this contest.

Conceptual art, sometimes simply called Conceptualism, is art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns.

The first wave of the 'conceptual art' movement extended from approximately 1967 to 1978. Early 'concept' artists like Henry Flynt, Robert Morris, and Ray Johnson influenced the later, widely accepted movement of conceptual art. Conceptual artists like Dan Graham, Hans Haacke, and Lawrence Weiner have proven very influential on subsequent artists, and well known contemporary artists such as Mike Kelley or Tracey Emin are sometimes labeled 'second- or third-generation' conceptualists, or 'post-conceptual' artists.

Many of the concerns of the conceptual art movement have been taken up by contemporary artists. While they may or may not term themselves 'conceptual artists', ideas such as anti-commodification, social and/or political critique, and ideas/information as medium continue to be aspects of contemporary art, especially among artists working with installation art, performance art, and electronic/digital art.
