PREFERRED TERM
57Postmodernism  
SCOPE NOTE
  • A term which describes the reactions to the dominance of Modernism in architecture and the visual arts. It came into use in the 1970s, at first mainly in connection with architecture, and then later with the visual and decorative arts. To the extent that Modern "isms" establish a formal attitude to both the making and critiquing of art, Postmodernism rejects that approach in favor of Eclecticism.
