#BlackLivesMatter movement placed at the #1 spot this year of Power 100 chart listed by Art Review, the leading International Contemporary Art Magazine. #BlackLivesMatter is now the symbol of a global revenge on racial justice and a paradigm shift in contemporary culture. ArtReview says: #BlackLivesMatter movement has impelled and accelerated change at every level of the art world: in the resurgence of statue-toppling in the US and across Europe, as campaigners seek to redress injustices of the historical record; in the visibility of Black contemporary artists; in awards and appointments; in the rush by galleries to diversify their rosters; in museums rethinking who they represent and how they do it.
