Funk Art

In the 1960s, Fun Art was a reactive movement against abstract exressionism. It was widely known as an anti-establishment movement, the name comes from the jazz term "funky". This had positive and negative notations as the term in the jazz world, described passion, quirkyness, and sensuality, while it could also be associated with a foul odor. Funk was popular in California Bay Area, and while the artists of the Funk Art era had similar attitudes and artwork, they did not consider themselves as a part of a group movement.

Site Specific Art

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.
