On the whole, we can say that modernism and post modernism both are vague concepts but have been applied to various aspects. They refer to different models of thinking, forms of art, structure of architectures, technologies and machineries.
The reason why this vague term of “post modernism” still existed is because of its genuineness in the eyes of the theorists and the philosophers. In other words, it is a result of shift in political, economic, social and cultural structure.
History is evidence to the fact that civilizations like to create monuments in stone. Throughout the ages every generation have tried to leave its mark on time, the Pyramids of Giza, Leonardo da Vinci’s Monalisa, The TajMahal all are evidence of this fact. It is also true that not all sculptures, paintings and other forms of art survive the test of time. The sustainability and preservation of the works of art is due to the fact that people have acknowledged them and gave them a place in society.
In this post-modernistic era, some regard ours as the lost generation with no individuality, style or substance to call our own. We rehash styles, fashion, and music from the bygone era; we have become a parody of ourselves. Those who support the post modernistic culture argue that everything great worth doing has been done, every great thought has been expressed through art; we are now a derivation of those great works. It’s better to give up rather than try to create something truly unique. Not to be undone by the naysayers and the pessimists, there are people and artists who believe they could bring something new to the world and leave their mark on the pages of history. The White Rabbit art gallery in Sydney, Australia is one such establishment where modernism and post-modernism style meets and create some truly remarkable art.
