Get Votin’

Who is the Australian art world's most powerful person? In the first of our polls leading up to the release of The Power Trip: Australia's Most Powerful People we're throwing open the nominations [so far] to a vote. Register your vote at right on the homepage [just under the archive drop down menu], leave comments below with other nomination... and let the fighting begin.

Want to win a prize? You can nominate up to ten people on your own list of the most powerful. Leave them below, or send them to us at: the art life at hot mail dot com. The winner of the best, most original, credible and/or amusing list will win a mint condition copy of MONAISM, the catalogue of the first hang of the collection Museum of Old and New Art back whenever that was. This handsome volume comes factory-sealed in its own MONA-branded carry bag and includes a CD of songs performed at the opening by those guys who used to be TISM.
