The 2010 ArtReview Power 100, in association with Dom Pérignon, is published in the November issue of ArtReview magazine, on newsstands – as well as on and Art Review 100 – from 14 October 2010.

The Power 100, published each year at this time, 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.

This website provides a snapshot of the Power 100, now in its ninth year, including all previous Power 100s, key geographical, occupational and gender breakdowns, and a portfolio of portraits commissioned for each issue, among them work by photographers Juergen Teller, Ari Marcopoulos, Max Farago, Robi Rodriguez, Roe Ethridge, Colby Bird.
