Miuccia Prada makes it onto ArtReview power list

By Emily Cronin

ArtReview magazine published its definitive list of the 100 most important figures in contemporary art today—and Miuccia Prada is included alongside the world's top artists, dealers and collectors.

The arts magazine ranked entrants according to ‘a combination of influence over the production of art internationally, sheer financial clout (although in these times that’s no longer such a big factor) and activity in the previous 12 months’.

Prada has long been a supporter of the arts through her Fondazione Prada contemporary art space. Her private art collection includes pieces by prominent artists such as Anish Kapoor, Louise Bourgeois and Carsten Holler (Prada has one of Holler’s famous slides installed in Prada Group headquarters). Her work, considered more art than fashion by some, was the subject of this year's Costume Institute exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Also appearing on the list are LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault and Dasha Zhukova, who founded the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture.
