Definitions for "Conceptual Art"
This is a term used for art in the late 1960-1975 where the idea for a piece of work is more important than the execution and completion of the work.
Developed in the 1960s from the idea that the essence of art lies in the ideas embodied in a work, rather than in the physical aesthetics of an object.
An art form developed in the late 1960s to protest the commercialization of art in which the originating idea and the process by which it is presented take precedence over a tangible product.
