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.
Renowned for its historic support of the arts, Dior joins forces with Artsy at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City from May 3–20. Dior and Artsy have enlisted talent from The Artsy Vanguard for an exhibition on the retail landmark’s second floor and unique window installations alongside looks from Dior’s Fall 2018 collection, which pays homage to Surrealist photographer Claude Cahun.
