A word artsy people use when they don't actually have an explanation or strong idea for what they did. Basically in this sense, conceptual can also mean "my bullshit"
Art Professor: So what are you interested in doing?
Art Student: I'm thinking about doing a film, but not narrative or documentary or performance piece. Conceptually it's abstract and, uh....It's just a very conceptual piece.
Art Professor: You have no idea what you're talking about, do you?
Art Student: No, no I don't.
Conceptual art is a newer form of art that focuses more on ideas than on pleasing visuals or traditional beauty. it is a response to older forms of art. People will label it modern art
. Conceptual art is not always abstract art
but sometimes is. Conceptual art is often labeled pretentious
because most mainstream people have trouble understanding it. a conceptual album for instance is an album that may tell an overall story. post modernism
conceptual ideas are found everywhere. pink floyd's the wall is a conceptual album.
