Description

Buddhist-inspired, Buddhist-influenced artists, some from Buddhist heritage countries, influenced international contemporary art, not least in the disappearance of the art “object,” from the mid-twentieth century onwards. Contemporary art merged with everyday life, using a vast variety of ephemeral materials, performances, actions, words, and events, no longer confined to drawing, painting, sculpture, or film, but including light, sound, energy, “time-motion.” This is, generally speaking, an art of immanence.
