Well, It's that time of year again and the word is out from ArtReview magazine in its annual Power 100 list, which is released to coincide with the Frieze Art Fair in London.The list sees Damien Hirst plumet from number 1 to number 48 The top 10 includes Tate director Sir Nicholas Serota in third place and Hans Ulrich Obrist director of international projects at the Serpentine Gallery in at number 1 up from 38. Charles Saatchi has fallen to position 72 from 14.

I'm not really sure that this list is such a great idea but as we are called ArtLyst, it sort of fits the format ...enjoy!
