Conceptualism is often perceived as a response to Minimalism, and the leading art movement of the 1970s, challenging the boundaries of art with its revolutionary features. The movements that ensued were all characteristic of a strong desire to progress and consolidate the art world, in response to the tensions of the previous 1960s.

All over, numerous movements defined the 1970s. Amongst others, feminism and the innovative radical theories it entailed strongly influenced the visual culture.

The critical, prominent artistic pillars of New York city started to embrace painters and sculptors from Latin America.
