Index for exhibition catalogs
Looking up an exhibition catalog in a library or a bookshop will only work through the title and may be through the curator’s or the text author’s name. You will never find the complete list of all artists participating in a group exhibition, although it is important information for you and your research.
Exhibitions documented with artist-info.com and like this searchable for the exhibition venue name, exhibition title and subtitle, the artists and curators are an important additional dimension to the existing artist CV or exhibition venue’s exhibition archive on their website. In most cases they only provide limited scope of information and time span.
