Conceptual Art

An art form in which the underlying idea or concept and the process by which it is achieved are more important than any tangible product. Art form in which the originating idea and the process by which it is presented take precedence over a tangible product. Conceptual works are sometimes produced in visible form, but they often exist only as descriptions of mental concepts or ideas. This trend developed in the late 1960s, in part as a way to avoid the commercialization of art.
