Conceptual Art or "information art", became a symbol for artistic freedom, especially in the 1960's and 1970's. The movement represented a collection of free thinking artists with ideas that extended into the written and participation forms of modern and contemporary art. Many particular artists deserve recognition for their work, and some of these artists involved in the movement include Robert Barry, Vito Acconci, Joseph Kosuth, Mel Bochner, Chris Burden, and Jan Dibbets. The Conceptual artists looked anywhere for ideas and information, to them, every idea was a good one.
