The United States has been key in the development of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, especially in the post war era, when the cultural importance of New York assumed primacy over Paris, previously considered as the most powerful art centre in the world. Leading art movements established and cultivated in extensive ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in various forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast variations, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus various post-modern echoes of these many types. In the modern and contemporary era, the United States has exercised a powerful influence over the visual culture of the World, due to the authority of its economic and political institutions.
