Contemporary art is an artistic trend that began to manifest itself in the postwar period as an action of separation of modern art. Although there is no consensus among historians and critics, it is considered that it became more evident and has more space with significant changes in the art from the second half of the twentieth century, extending to the present day. At no other time in history artists have had so much creative freedom to express themselves, is technically or conceptually, sem compromissos institucionais com a igreja ou a política.
In this artistic current, freedom of creation with the aim of increasing their creative opportunities leads the artist to pass through different periods: o happening, a performace, about minimalismo, a body art, and on art, a pop art e a street art. It is possible to identify some obvious characteristics in contemporary art as: transience of the work, abandoning the traditional supports, the mix of styles, the interaction of the viewer with the work or approach to popular culture, use of the audiovisual and digital media, among other things.
