About the Series

The Artsy Vanguard is a new, annual list of the most influential talents shaping the future of contemporary art practice. Selected by Artsy’s team of editors—with insight from a global group of leading collectors, curators, and other influential members of the art world—the 50 featured artists range in age from 23 to 97 and hail from 18 countries; they create work that spans across media and addresses wide-ranging subject matter. Each, however, is reaching a crucial new stage in her or his career: whether that’s gaining representation by an influential gallery, landing their first group show at a museum, or finally seeing their career fêted with a retrospective at a major institution.
