New Generation Sculpture

New Generation Sculpture was begun in the 1960s by a group of British artists. Their experiments with forms, materials and colors focused on sculpture which had no conventional bases. Their work used plastic sheeting, fiberglass, and other materials fastened together and brightly painted.

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.

Readymade

Readymade is the term Marcel Duchamp used to describe his artworks made from objects which were manufactured. The French artist first used the term, and artists who work similarly now use it. Duchamp chose functional objects which he felt had visual indifference.
