Artwork that's created to exist in a given/certain place. Location is taken into account by the artist as he plans and creates his artwork. Robert Irwin reined and promoted it in California. Site Specific Art came after modernist objects as artist's reaction to the world's situation. Modernists objects were nomadic, transportable, only existed in museum space and were for commodification and market.
