Top 30: Vanessa Beecroft

I have long held the position that contemporary art not only serves an expression of cultural values but that some succeed because they resonate with what the public desire, like any product. Beecroft was the reason I began exploring fashion versus art when I was invited to speak about her work at the Cornell Museum. The artist achieves a formal presentation of the female body, with a cult of fashion and the turnover of styles but in more recent years she aims for global resonance.
