The 1960s may be the 20th-century decade that wrote the code for our contemporary moment. Introducing text/information-based strategies, real-time, and the rupture of specific media boundaries into artistic practice, it defined creative criteria, models of authorship mediation, and new distribution networks that are still very much with us. A focus of recent scholarship—specifically the crux moments at the inception of Fluxus (1962), Minimalism (1963), Conceptual Art (c.1965–68), and Institutional Critique (1968)—the art-historical and museum canonization of Sixties “movements” is yet to penetrate the radical rupture that redefined the creative act at this time.
