Art Movements and Styles | Sitemap



An art movement is a tendency or style in art with a specific common philosophy or goal, followed by a group of artists during a restricted period of time, (usually a few months, years or decades) or, at least, with the heyday of the movement defined within a number of years.
Art movements were especially important in modern art, when each consecutive movement was considered as a new avant-garde.

Concept

According to theories associated with modernism and the concept of postmodernism, art movements are especially important during the period of time corresponding to modern art.
The period of time called "modern art" is posited to have changed approximately halfway through the 20th century and art made afterward is generally called contemporary art.
Postmodernism in visual art begins and functions as a parallel to late modernism and refers to that period after the "modern" period called contemporary art.

The postmodern period began during late modernism (which is a contemporary continuation of modernism), and according to some theorists postmodernism ended in the 21st century. During the period of time corresponding to "modern art" each consecutive movement was often considered a new avant-garde.
Also during the period of time referred to as "modern art" each movement was seen corresponding to a somewhat grandiose rethinking of all that came before it, concerning the visual arts.
Generally there was a commonality of visual style linking the works and artists included in an art movement. Verbal expression and explanation of movements has come from the artists themselves, sometimes in the form of an art manifesto, and sometimes from art critics and others who may explain their understanding of the meaning of the new art then being produced.
In the visual arts, many artists, theorists, art critics, art collectors, art dealers and others mindful of the unbroken continuation of modernism and the continuation of modern art even into the contemporary era, ascribe to and welcome new philosophies of art as they appear.

Postmodernist theorists posit that the idea of art movements are no longer as applicable, or no longer as discernible, as the notion of art movements had been before the postmodern era. There are many theorists however who doubt as to whether or not such an era was actually a fact; or just a passing fad.
The term refers to tendencies in visual art, novel ideas and architecture, and sometimes literature. In music it is more common to speak about genres and styles instead. See also cultural movement, a term with a broader connotation.
As the names of many art movements use the -ism suffix (for example cubism and futurism), they are sometimes referred to as isms.

Un movimento artistico è una corrente artistica, letteraria, pittorica o culturale solitamente caratterizzata da un programma di rottura o rinnovamento rispetto al panorama esistente; più tecnicamente si indica una tendenza estesa che si sviluppa nelle diverse forme dell'arte in un determinato periodo storico ed in una determinata zona in una dimensione superiore a quella di un gruppo artistico isolato.
Esistono movimenti artistici di tipo organizzato, come il futurismo ed il surrealismo, creati da fondatori e dotati di manifesti e di programmi propri e movimenti di fatto, in qualche modo nati spontaneamente e definibili dall'osservazione della realtà estetica preoponderante come il movimento Informale o l'Art Nouveau.
Un movimento artistico di fatto è tale quando sia possibile definirne in modo sufficientemente preciso area e consistenza e quando sia possibile descriverne la poetica in ambito storico-critico, intesa come convergenze espressive e linguistiche, intenzionali o meno.
L'identità di un movimento inoltre è spesso configurata attraverso quelle personalità, o aggregazioni di personalità, che ne costituiscono gli elementi fondamentali di ricerca o tendenza.
