    Well, Phillip Tinari is at 84 on the Power 100, and I think that’s well-deserved. Maybe you could count Zizek and Groys too, though that’s a pretty different job description.

    Also, number 54 is Artur Zmijewski. What the shit? He’s an excellent artist, but he doesn’t have a gallery outside of Switzerland for mystery reasons (this has been an ongoing mystery for me, actually), and I can’t think of anything that really blew up for him in the last year. Exactly what kind of power does he have?
