Do you know someone who shapes the landscape of the art world?

We are compiling a comprehensive online list of the most powerful individuals in the art industry, encompassing those who wield influence beyond the traditional boundaries of "fine art." This is not just about artists, but about individuals across various sectors who hold the power to:

We are seeking nominations for individuals who hold power in:

  • Artistic Creation: Renowned artists, performers, and creative minds who significantly impact the artistic landscape.
  • Art Market & Infrastructure: Gallery directors, art dealers, art fair organizers, auction house specialists, collectors, patrons, and individuals significantly impacting the economic and commercial aspects of the art world.
  • Curatorial Influence: Curators, museum directors, and individuals who influence artistic narratives and showcase emerging talent through exhibitions and public engagement.
  • The Power of Technology: Art tech founders, software developers, and digital innovators who are altering the creation, presentation, and accessibility of art.
  • Social Changemakers: Activists, educators, and thought leaders who utilize art for social impact and community engagement.
  • Critical Voices: Writers, critics, journalists, and researchers who shape the way we understand and discuss art.

  • Philanthropists & Supporters: Individuals and organizations who make significant financial or logistical contributions to artists, institutions, and artistic endeavors.

Essentially, anyone who significantly and demonstrably influences the art world is eligible for nomination.
