Young Artists 2022
Youth, like art, is a mindset, not an age. The handpicked individuals that follow radiate with the energy of potential.
Young Curators 2021
The age of the super-curator, who makes themselves the main attraction, is over. A new generation of curators, who are often more interested in social practices, in overlooked histories, in the unglamorous side of exhibition-making, in asking, “what if?” are now coming into their own. Here are eight New Yorkers putting the work first.
Young Collectors 2021
In assembling our annual roll call, we found ourselves pleasantly surprised by the abundance of new faces and advocates for the arts. Ambitious in their intentions and deep-pocketed in resources, together the class of 2021 embody everything that works about the current patronage system, while leaving behind its more insidious malpractices.
Young Artists 2021
Embarking on our fifth annual young artists list offered a critical and, at times, joyful moment of group reflection on both the historical moment and this project’s history. Like countless other endeavors during covid, putting this list together without physical contact seemed a herculean task, yet, because of this, it is all the more rewarding to share our portfolio with you.
Young Architects 2021
For our inaugural young architects list, architecture and design editor Elizabeth Fazzare surveys the innovators transforming the field of architecture, designing for a sustainable future and working for social justice. These are twelve designers to watch in 2021.
Young Curators 2020
This year, in the midst of multiple, intertwined global crises, we decided to broaden the horizons of our annual round-up of young curators, focusing our efforts on the power of vision rather than the lure of youth. Here are 10 curators we see leading by example: translating their empathy and devotion into action.
Young Collectors 2020
A new vanguard of entrepreneurs, actors, designers and executives is getting involved in the arts and redefining what a contemporary patron looks like, from multiple vantage points. For our third annual young collectors list, we showcase the breadth of this new generation’s engagement, and ask for their best advice on how we can join them.
Young Artists 2020
Our fourth annual young artists list wrote itself—made over in the vision of a more inclusive world, one in which comedians, sculptors, photographers, painters, designers and actors are no longer separated by arbitrary boundaries but rather sat next to each other in a creative support system.
Young Curators 2019
For Cultured’s fourth annual selection of Young Curators, we present seven visionaries destabilizing the traditional models and creating space for new names to flourish within the establishment. We believe these curators are galvanizing social change—a kind of care for the soul of the world.
Young Collectors 2019
Art collections are as varied as the individuals that curate them—in content, origin and motivation. For our second annual selection of young collectors, we focus on a diverse group that shares a common thread: the nurturing of conversations that tie art to the larger context of the world.
Young Artists 2018
Via screen, canvas or installation, these are the voices of a moment in time that has as much to mourn as to celebrate. We look to the youth to communicate our future—a glimpse of which we capture on these pages.
Young Artists 2017
Meet 30 of the art world’s most compelling young voices representing both coasts, and operating on a totally global frequency.
