Contemporary art is important. It is a art style that includes a lot more creative outlooks and more intense expression. The interesting part about contemporary art is it is meant to invoke a feeling or idea to the viewer just by looking at the piece they created. This can be done in many ways. We have seen artistic pieces that resent war or death, but we also see pieces that represent glee or excitement. These pieces have no set subject matter, and they have no set guidelines. It is completely up to the artist to create a piece of work that can be as different or creative as they feel while still being able to draw that emotion or thought from the viewer. I think contemporary art is a defining time within the art community and has a lot of importance in not just the art world but the rest of the world as well.
