"Contemporary Art: World Currents" argues that, in recent decades, a worldwide shift from modern to contemporary art has occurred. This has not, however, been a uniform change from one phase or style in the history of art to another. Rather, artists everywhere have embraced the contemporary world's teeming multiplicity, its proliferating differences, and its challenging complexities. Diversity--the contemporaneity of difference--not a convergence towards sameness, Smith argues, is what makes today¹s art contemporary.
