Visualizing Art Networks

Visualizing Art Networks - ARTIST artists

‘Visualizing Art Networks’ page is an introduction to
how this service provides new insight into the world of contemporary art worldwide.

Visually analyzing complex data is telling new stories

   There are exhibitions showing contemporary fine art here and there and at many places worldwide. Some exhibitions are low budget non-profit projects, some are sophisticated shows at commercial places like galleries, and some are high budget international museum exhibits. They are all using this media to show to the public the artist’s artwork related to a specific theme and to further explore our cultural heritage.
   The exhibition history is for all, the artist with a biography on solo- und group-exhibitions, the exhibition venue with its program, and the curator an important source for their profile and positioning, their mission and quality. And although their individual branding is existential to them they are all building upon each other’s efforts in some way.
   However, retracing geographically and chronologically the exhibition information using a network graph wouldn’t reveal much new insight.
   Using Big Data and cross-linking and analyzing all exhibition histories from 1930 up to today on the basis of nomen est omen is offering new insight on a meta level.
   Visualizing Art Networks by artist-info is identifying, helping to explore and to develop the valuable connections between artists, curators and exhibition places.

  Visualizing Art Networks provides for a specific artist, curator, or exhibition place, like a commercial gallery, museum, non-profit place, or collector venue, as the CENTRAL node the following points of view for visualizing their networks, showing how the members of the clusters and sub-clusters are connected with the CENTRAL node and among each other.
