"The work of most of the artis ts represented in this exhibition has come to be classified under the heading of Conceptual art, a term that at first was used along with other, more specific labels such as Idea Art, Earth Art or Land Art, Body Art, Arte Povera, Serial Art, etc. Over the past three decades, the word 'Conceptual' has assumed many meanings, from defining a precise historical period that setparameters around very specific practices that critically engaged the idea of art and how meaning is produced, to an all-encompassing category made u p of disparate bodies of work from the mid-1960s to the present that d not answer to traditional forms or trajectories of specific meiums such as painting, sculpture, photography or film." - from the introduction.
