Contemporary Art in all its Forms
In its most basic sense, the term contemporary art refers to art—namely, painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, and video art—produced today.
This extensive selection of works includes the leading lights active from 1945 to 1970, including Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Louise Bourgeois, as well as contemporary luminaries such as Peter Doig, Jeff Koons and Gerhard Richter.
Also included are works by emerging artists which include paintings, drawings, photographs and installations by a wide range of artists and schools from early Abstract Expressionism through to the present day.
Intended as a reaction to preceding modern art movements, contemporary art is thought to have begun on the heels of Pop Art. In post-war Britain and America, Pop Art was pioneered by artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. It is defined by an interest in portraying mass culture and reimagining commercial products as accessible art. While the movement lasted roughly from the 1950s through the early 1970s, it was reborn as Neo-Pop Art in the 1980s thanks to artists like Jeff Koons.
