LONDON (AP) - Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and jailed Russian punks Pussy Riot are among artists, curators and collectors on a list of the 100 most influential figures in the art world.

Top spot on Art Review magazine's annual Power 100 list is taken by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, who runs the Documenta 13 art fair in Kassel, Germany.

Other entrants include gallery owners Larry Gagosian, Iwan Wirth and Jay Jopling and Tate director Nicholas Serota.

Ai is the highest-rated artist, at No. 3, ahead of figures including Gerhard Richter and Damien Hirst.

Pussy Riot, in 57th spot, is a new entry on the list, compiled by an international jury and released Thursday.

Two of the all-female group's members are in prison for staging an anti-government performance in a Moscow cathedral.
