SYDNEY.- MCA Director Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, and artist and Artistic Director of the 22nd Biennale of Sydney NIRIN Brook Andrew, have been named in the international art publication ArtReview’s Power 100 list for 2020, an annual ranking of the most influential figures in the world of contemporary art.

The 19th edition of ArtReview’s Power 100 list was compiled by a panel of 20 artists, curators and critics from around the world, ranking individuals and organisations that have had major influence on art over the past 12 months.

Elizabeth Ann Macgregor - the only Australian museum director listed - joins other directors including Thelma Golden, director of the Studio Museum in Harlem; Glenn D. Lowry Director of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA); Maria Balshaw and Frances Morris Directors of Tate and Tate Modern, Brook Andrew joins other artists including Zanele Muholi, Steve McQueen and Cecilia Vicuña.

MCA Chair, Lorraine Tarabay says: ‘Given the challenging year we have all had in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the enormous pressure on Liz Ann to guide the MCA, the Museum Board are thrilled to see that her enormous contribution has been recognised internationally, as well as nationally, placing her among the art world’s most influential people. Liz Ann’s forward-thinking vision for the Museum, entrepreneurial spirit, advocacy for artists being at the heart of MCA, and commitment to social impact programs is truly inspirational.’

Tarabay also congratulates Brook Andrew for his inclusion in ArtReview’s list: ‘Brook Andrew’s artist- and First Nations-led 22nd Biennale of Sydney NIRIN this year was ground-breaking and truly demonstrated that artists and creatives have the power to heal and imagine transformative futures that can re-set the world.’

ArtReview describes this year’s Power 100 list as having a greater emphasis on the circulation of ideas and values – such as justice, equality, ways of living, our relationship with the environment and basic human rights - and the way in which ideas and values (as opposed to works by individual artists or artist groups) are changing how we think about and engage with art.
