1) INTRO: Art History now encompasses 2000-right now. It is not just a bunch of white guys back in Europe hundreds of years ago, primarily painting with brushes.
This presentation looks at the most recent art history there is, the early 21st Century. There are named art movements in this era but to some extent that is promotion. One’s art sells more easily if it is easily identified and classified.
There are a number of factors which stand out that need no labels. This era of art history easily encompasses artists of both genders and all races. Women artists are perhaps even more interested in sexuality as a topic than male artists. There are no issues or images off limits. If the artist is from a part of the world where censorship is still allowed, then that is a subject that one can count on seeing in their art work.
These artists are usually well educated too, having at least an undergraduate degree and often more. And they are all online.
