The New World and Transnational Art
Hypothetically speaking, nearly whole borders are melted today, and distances are vanished. But t is no surprise to us, and also we are never confused for what to think. I mean that this age has almost lost its spirit, excitement; and everything is similarity and sameness. This is so despite the fact that art works are different. Likewise are Christo's, Beuys', Andy Warhol's and Tunicks’ art works. Traditional art peaked in the 19th century as modernist art was beginning - all the former radically changing to the new. Modernism seeks to obtain sameness for cultural things and kill the rest. Is it true?
If post-modernism is the face of new world art, should we say this art has happened after modernism? However, should we evaluate the aesthetic value of this artwork?
In this paper I argue that the answer to both of these questions. I do so by arguing that the very question post-modernism is the face of new world art. If it is false, then we should not say modernism is finished from consideration. Since the modernist art was the beginning of avant-garde art post-modern art is defining features of the artwork.
