Research On Time Periods (1985-1900)

As we formulate the art history of the late twentieth century, the 1980s are clearly a crucial turning point. Neo-Expressionism, New Image painting, graffiti art, and neo-conceptualism were a few of the movements that reached zeniths of varying heights and vulnerability during the era. It was a period of boom and bust; twenty-six-year-old painters became glamorous superstars who couldn’t make work fast enough for their corporate buyers. In a decade of Reagonomics-driven conspicuous consumption, the art world participated fully, promoting inflated prices and shooting star careers. Many of the artists who came to prominence in that era remain major figures in contemporary art.
The Cola Wars was a campaign of mutually-targeted television advertisements and marketing campaigns since the 1980s between soft drink manufacturers Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo Incorporated.

Some would argue that The Cola Wars was a spoof of the Cold War which 1946 to 1991 of political conflict, military tension, proxy wars, and economic competition between the Communist World—primarily the Soviet Union and its satellite statesand allies—and the powers of the Western world, primarily the United States and its allies.
