AAD Guest Curators Archive

About our guest curators

With 2400+ artists in our archives we realize it can be daunting to find your favorites. To help, we have partnered with artists, gallery owners, collectors and curators by asking them to share their top five favorite artists on the site.

Each of these people have made careers out of their love of art so we asked them to share what they like with you.

Enjoy browsing through what these influential people picked and stay tuned for more guest curators.
