I've decided to become a Swiss artist.
There is only one Canadian artist on this list so it's time for me to go Heidi on your booty, world.Guardian Unlimited Arts | Arts news | French tycoon tops art power list. Or maybe I should become a search engine? Just know, every time you drop by to visit and chew the fat with me I'm crawling my way into the art list.
The most surprising inclusion on this list, at number 100, is the search engine Google. Mr Weich insisted it was not a joke. "Many of the curators we speak to have mentioned the potential of [the photo-sharing site] Flickr as a viable exhibition area - that in a few years from now they'll be curating online to millions of viewers.
"And while we quickly concluded that Flickr has a way to go yet, it did make us realise how much we rely on Google for our art information. In a strange way, the number of hits an artist, curator or even a dealer gets can legitimise him in the same way it can anyone else."
And speaking of art...I will be publishing an interview with Canadian curator David Moos tomorrow. Hope you can stop by again, don't be shy!
