BEST OF 2014

View of “Korakrit Arunanondchai with Korapat Arunanondchai: 2557 (Painting with history in a room filled with men with funny names 2),” 2014, Carlos/Ishikawa, London.

EACH DECEMBER, Artforum invites a group of distinguished critics, curators, and artists from around the world to consider the year in art. Eleven contributors count down their top ten highlights of 2014, while six others select the single exhibition or event that, for them, rose above the rest. To cap this survey, we asked renowned novelist WILLIAM GIBSON and thinkers GRÉGOIRE CHAMAYOU and BEN VICKERS to reflect on the year in information: on how we search, map, picture, and track—and, in turn, are tracked—at a moment when the very act of communication is at once a submission to surveillance and a will to power.
