Terms of the Day for November 16

  • Postmodern Art - a movement in Western art, spanning from the late 1970s until the present, which rejects the key ideas of modernism. 
  • Pluralism - a Postmodern movement in art that assumes the cultural context of art should be all-encompassing in its respect for the art of the world's wide variety of cultures and artistic styles, and that diverse cultural and stylistic influences can coexist in a work of art.
  • Appropriation - an artistic concept in which an artist uses an image already in existence and places it in a new context in order to give it new meanings.
  • Graffiti - images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property.  Generally regarded as vandalism, the Postmodern era has recognized it as a legitimate artform.
  • Pastiche - a literary, artistic, musical, or architectural work that imitates the style of previous work or an artistic composition made up of selections from different works.
  • Bricolage - the construction or creation of a work of art from a diverse range of things which happen to be available.
