Conceptual art developed as a key movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the spacious outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging 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 prominent position in the international art scene, ensuring that international artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city.
