“The ArtReview Power 100, published each year in the November issue of ArtReview magazine, is a comprehensive listing of the artworld’s most powerful figures. Entrants are ranked according to a combination of influence over the production of art internationally, sheer financial clout (although in these times that’s no longer such a big factor) and activity in the previous 12 months – criteria which encompass artists, of course, as well as collectors, gallerists and curators. Regular appearances are also made by those who run the major art fairs, by museum and foundation directors, and even by the occasional critic.”
The first woman that appears on the list at number 8 is Julieta Aranda in conjuction with Anton Vidokle and Brian Kuan Wood with their e-flux website. Julieta Aranda is also an international artist that lives in New York and Berlin.
