NAN GOLDIN AND MICKALENE THOMAS SELECTED AS THE YEAR'S MOST INFLUENTIAL ARTISTS
"The year’s most influential artists drove unprecedented crowds to museums, incited heated debates, spurred Instagram sensations, and set splashy auction records. Some harnessed innovative digital technologies, while others took centuries-old craft techniques to new heights." Nan Goldin was this fall named the second-most powerful person in the art world by ArtReview. Thomas continued to be a force within the art world, as well, with solo shows at Galerie Nathalie Obadia in Paris during FIAC, at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, and a striking survey, “Better Nights,” at The Bass, which opened the week of Art Basel in Miami Beach.
