Are Artists Getting More Powerful?

The ArtReview Power 100: Are Artists Getting More Powerful?
by Andrea Alessi and Joel Kuennen

In the first edition of ArtReview’s Power 100, a mere four artists were included on the list of the art world’s most influential actors. That was 2002. By 2012 that number would creep up to 16 artists—nearly all men—after hovering in the single digits for most of the decade.

In 2013 the number of “powerful” artists spiked up to a quarter of ArtReview’s annual selectees, where it has remained ever since. This year’s list, which was released Thursday, has a clean 25 entries, with Ai Weiwei taking the highest ranking artist spot at number 2 (he took the top position in 2011, only the second artist to reach number one, after Damien Hirst in 2005).

Saatchi Gallery - Art Links

Just how do you discover new artists when there are so many choices?  One solution might be the Saatchi Gallery. 

Their website not only acts as a reference point for their own London-based exhibitions and events, but also offers a massive amount of information including links to other art sites.

Their Art and Artist links page connects to a wide range of groups and individuals.  It is free to be listed there, making it extremely open and diverse.  There is no curatorial restriction here - the only requirement is that listed sites link back to Saatchi.

Take a look at some of the people featured there.  You can scroll through the list or sort it by A-Z.  It might take a while!
