Conceptual art emerged as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work.

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