Contemporary art is the artistic expression of our time that reflects or expresses the current state of society. At first, it is understood that his works are those originated throughout the twentieth century. However, the term “contemporary” has great ambiguity in itself, since it encompasses a selection of works whose contemporaneity is doomed to end, due to the passage of time. Although, there are some art connoisseurs who relate this artistic concept to that of modern art, seeking its dissimilarities. However, it can be said that contemporary art includes by definition the Contemporary Age, which began in the seventeenth century and therefore, includes the art of the twentieth century, but would reach a dimension to the immediate present. At the Balclis auctions, you will find a wide variety of contemporary art pieces.
