What 'Avant Garde' conveys!

Avant-garde (French pronunciation: [avɑ̃ɡaʁd]) means "advance guard" or "vanguard".[1] The adjective form is used in English, to refer to people or works that are experimental or innovative, particularly with respect to artculture, and politics.
Avant-garde represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The notion of the existence of the avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from postmodernism. Many artists have aligned themselves with the avant-garde movement and still continue to do so, tracing a history from Dada through the Situationists to postmodern artists such as the Language poets around 1981.

No wonder this amazing word "Avant Garde" reflets such a stupendous aura, i love using this word so much, be it my one of the most favorite blog's title or the group i have made on freerice portal in collaboration with WFP: 

My group  with current member count of 7has donated 1,80000 grains to needy people world-wide by now!
