Contemporary Art: World Currents

Terry Smith

“Contemporary Art World Currents argues that, in recent decades, a worldwide shift from modern to contemporary art has occurred. This has not however, been a uniform change from one phase or styles in the history if art to another. Rather, artists everywhere have embraced the contemporary world’s teeming multiplicity, its proliferating difference and its challenging complexities.

Diversity – the contemporaneity of difference – not the convergence towards sameness, Smith argues, is what makes today’s art contemporary.” – Blurb
