Questions About Contemporary Iranian Art
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Contemporary art denotes work created by 21st-century artists.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 21, 2024
    In contemporary art, conceptual art is a movement that began in the 1960s. Artists producing conceptual art assign more importance to the idea behind the art than to the piece itself. An example is Joseph Kosuth’s One and Three Chairs, a piece consisting of a real chair, a photograph of a chair and the dictionary definition of the word chair. When the work was displayed, Kosuth included instructions for any chair to be photographed and then displayed beside its image. In this way, the chair itself is not the artwork. Rather, the art comes from examining the way the object, image and words provide competing and complementary definitions of what a chair is. Find a large selection of fine art on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 16, 2024
