Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the spacious outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism.

New York maintained an important position in the international art world, ensuring that international artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city.
