Period and styles of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and architecture dating from the recent past and present. It differs from modern art in that the term 'Contemporary art' does not carry the implication of a non-traditional style, but instead refers only to the time period in which the work was created. 'Modern' and 'Contemporary' are inherently fluid terms. The term 'Contemporary' is sometimes more narrowly used to refer to art from ca. 1960 or 1970 up to the present. To refer to the current time period without reference to style of art, use "contemporary (generic time frame)".
Works in two dimensions or very low relief that were made by gluing paper, fabrics, photographs, or other materials onto a flat surface
mixed media
Information indicator for any combination of a variety of materials plus the associated techniques, used in the making of a single work of art. In printmaking, use when more than one technique, such as both etching and engraving, are used in one print. For the painting technique of laying oil paint glazes over tempera paint or tempera paint glazes over oil paint, use "mixed technique." For a general term for a variety of artistic or communicative forms used in a given work or works, such as contemporary works that employ both sculpture and music, use "multimedia." For the concept that certain contemporary works merge known art forms to inaugurate a new type, use "intermedia."
