The interesting nature of art is that society at large is always trying to define the status of art at any given time. I’m sure if you go into any gallery or contemporary museum you will see everything under the created sun. The list is very long and includes every -ism categorizing art movements. The best way to describe the current art movement is simply “pluralism”, meaning there are so many disciplines and styles currently represented they are all lumped together. There is currently no international movement such as the days of impressionism, cubism, and post modernism. Some say plurism has been the movement since the 80′s but back then many said painting was dead while in the beginning of the 21st century painting has had a large resurgance. With our new century almost a decade old it will be interesting to see if a new international movement will eventually emerge.
