Abstract: Recent sociological inquiry suggests that institutional changes in the field of contemporary, avant-garde art have produced an increasingly skewed distribution of resources among artists. Important thinkers have assumed that globalization has created a platform for increased multiculturalism; that the institutions of criticism, exhibition, and sales provide relatively synonymous measures of artistic reputation; and that pluralism has destroyed the gatekeeping capacity of criticism relative to exhibition and sales. Analysis of the representation of artists in Sculpture magazine suggests that none of these assumptions are valid. First, Sculpture reproduces an international hierarchy of artists very similar to those found in the FNAC, Kunstkompass, & Art Basel. The United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom dominate, followed by a second tier of Western European countries, trailed distantly by a vast periphery. Second, the major differences between these hierarchies reflect the institutional particularities of their respective selection processes. Third, while the symbolic meaning of criticism may have changed, criticism as an institution has grown in parallel with the rest of the art world over the past 200 years, and remains-- among other things--an important input in art dealers' pricing scripts.
