For this annual companion poll to our January/February issue’s Top 50 Critics’ Picks, our regular contributors and critics participated in this survey based on our yearly Readers’ Poll. Voters in the Expanded Critics’ Poll were asked to focus on artists’ achievements during 2018 rather than assessing entire careers.
Winners are bolded; runners-up are listed below in order of number of votes. An asterisk* denotes a tie. MAC RANDALL, EDITOR
