ArtReview published its annual Power 100 list last week. The 16th edition of this important who’s-who list names the most influential people in the art world. This year's list includes artists, curators, gallerists, theorists, authors and more. According to ArtReview, “An individual’s or group’s ranking is based on their international influence over the production and dissemination of art and ideas in the artworld and beyond over the past 12 months. In the 2017 edition, artists who are engaged in exploring radical political ideas feature prominently.”
There are 17 new entrants on the list this year, and of these, six are artists that ArtReview deems to have reached new heights of artworld prominence and power. Several have well-established careers, and a few are relatively new faces. Reviewed here are the six newly powerful artists making their debut on the Power 100.
