THE POWER 100
ArtReview’s 2009 guide to the most powerful people in contemporary art comes on the heels of a year of extraordinary financial stress. Previous No. 1s have plummeted, and a new generation of highly networked, flexible, globetrotting curators is bubbling up. With almost a third of entries new to the list this year, and sharp divisions among the panel of international experts making the selections, this edition marks a pronounced departure from previous Power 100s.
Artist projects by Nigel Cooke, Martin Creed, Assume Vivid Astro Focus and Wilfredo Prieto, a timeline of the year’s memorable events and all the Power pie charts you can eat.
