“With the 1980s after modern art, ‘postmodern’ or ‘contemporary’ art was being mentioned in several publications. Modern as a word was not enough to describe art after 1980. In the 1960s, certain artists and critics in New York mentioned about postmodernism to indicate an architecture form for it. Contemporary as an adjective showed up at the same time with postmodernism discussions.
In English texts, to describe afterwards of modern art, contemporary art firm was being preferred in certain academes. Again in certain academes, “current” as a word was being preferred because of the fact that contemporary as a word had different meanings.”1
