Contemporary art: A renewed sense of appreciation for art

In this blog, Cash writes <i>“Contemporary art is defined as the “art that has been and continues to be created during our lifetime.”  However, it should not be confused with its predecessor: modern art.  Many authority figures in the arts consider the delineation between contemporary and modern arts to be somewhere in the 1960s and 1970s because it was during this time that the postmodern art began to emerge.</i>

“Latin contemporary art: For the world”

According to Cash Myricks, “With more than thirty countries, Latin America is a source of entertaining and thought-provoking art.  A blend of Indian, European, and African culture, art from this part of the world has caught the attention of global collectors.” He also goes on to write some of the most beloved Latin contemporary artists in the world.

“What is contemporary art? An in-depth discussion”

For this article, Cash Myricks explores the different elements that make up contemporary art.  He notes that “To understand and ultimately appreciate contemporary art, one must accept several things, such as the constant experimental nature of contemporary artists and the fact that it is okay not to have a subject, which in many ways is the subject itself.”

But this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Cash Myricks has even more writings and insights in store for readers and contemporary art fans on the site.
