Historical Context of United States

Leading art movements developed and fostered in extensive ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in various forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast branches, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus a multitude of post-modern echoes of these many movements. In the modern and contemporary era, the United States has exercised a strong influence upon the visual culture of the World, due to the dominion of its economic and political structures.
