Flash Art 281 – November – December 2011





Flash Art brings back one of its historic surveys. For this Top 100 we wanted to grasp the public’s opinion of art — that is, of our readers and, for the first time, the users of the new Flash Art iPad application, which is receiving much attention and success. It is a large public, actively following art by attending exhibitions and keeping up-to-date by reading specialized art magazines. It is a public that creates movement in the art scene through the judgments made in a few passing comments that, when grouped together and elaborated upon, become the leading opinion of today’s art. Because in the end, the public is the true judge and critic of the art and culture of our time.


Thank you to everyone for your collaboration.

Helena Kontova, Giancarlo Politi
