photo Household materials, food, sometimes nothing at all --these are often the "materials" that artists use in the creation of "conceptual art." Even an idea can be a work of art. For these artists, art isn't just what you see. It's what you think. In its own way, conceptual art also tends to say something about culture, about the nature of art itself. EGG gets the skinny on conceptual art, from its origins to today, from curators and critics.
