Exhibition History Provides Important Insight

“You do not need to be a millionaire to access high quality but you do need to put a bit of time and effort into your own research or gaining access to some objective advice.”
Clare McAndrew,

  Studying an artist’s work, reading an art critic’s opinion, and looking at recent as well as older artwork to understand how perspectives and point of views do change is important.
  All your findings and evaluations are based on the many exhibitions of artwork which take place around the world since many decades. An exhibition venue’s type, concept and vision contributes in an important if not fundamental way to the artist’s positioning – on the long way to perhaps showing after many years in a major museum or selling in a gallery or at an auction for a high price.

More Insight for More Outlook – Art Analytics Services

  It means that analyzing the exhibition records of artists, curators, and exhibition venues can be an important source of information helping to reveal a picture about the individual qualities of an artist.

  The Exhibition Records Summary for each artist, curator and gallery, museum, non-profit and collector’s venue on their artist-info page show the many valuable aspects the analysis of hundreds of thousands of exhibition records is providing.

  The Summaries complement artist-info’s Artist Exhibition Statistics showing the 100 artists with the highest number of exhibitions and the powerful service, which analysis with a network graph and clusters and sub-clusters how artists, curators and exhibition venues are connected.

  An artist’s biographical notes might be a good starting point. Unfortunately in most cases they don’t provide information on the exhibition history of exhibition places, nor participating artists in group exhibitions, nor curators.
  artist-info’s cross-linked exhibition histories for artists, curators, galleries, museums, non-profit, and collector’s venues provide this substantial information with exhibition records from 1929 onwards for more than 150.000 artists, more than 11.000 exhibition places worldwide, and more than 500.000 exhibition records.

‘International Pop’ at Walker Art Center

  Organized by the Walker Art Center and on view April 11 through August 29, 2015, ‘International Pop’ is a groundbreaking historical survey that chronicles the global emergence of Pop Art from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s.
Find out more about all shown artists on this page.
Following the Walker’s presentation, the exhibition will travel to the Dallas Museum of Art (October 11, 2015 – January 17, 2016) and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (February 18 – May 15, 2016).
More details on the Walker Art Center artist-info ‘International Pop’ exhibition page.

  Another groundbreaking and important survey later this year is underscoring the Walker Art Center ‘International Pop’ exhibition by Darsie Alexander and Bartholomew Ryan and its new aproach: ‘The World Goes Pop’ at the Tate Modern, 17 September 2015–24 January 2016, with more details on the Tate Modern artist-info ‘The World Goes Pop’ exhibition page.

  Pop is among the most broadly recognized phenomena of postwar art, primarily identified with Britain and the U.S. In truth, however, the Pop impulse was strikingly nomadic, contagiously spreading not only through Britain and the U.S. but also Japan, Latin America, and

both Eastern and Western Europe. From its inception, Pop migrated across borders and media, seizing the power of mass media and communication to reach a new class of viewers and adherents who would be drawn to its dynamic attributes. Yet, as this exhibition will reveal, distinct iterations of Pop were developing worldwide that alternatively celebrated, cannibalized, rejected, or transformed some of the presumed qualities of Pop in the U.S. and Britain.

  Curated by Darsie Alexander (now Katonah Museum) with Bartholomew Ryan (now The Andy Warhol Museum) for the Walker Art Center in consultation with an international group of scholars and curators, International Pop asserts that Pop was not a singular artistic style or brand, but a roving spirit and ethos moving with unprecedented force through culture at large in the 1960s through a new abundance of everyday commodities, mass media production, and mainstream advertising.

  A key ambition of the exhibition is to show artists in the specific contexts from which they emerged, as well as to create relations between works across time and place. The exhibition is therefore organized into contextual sections—specific places or institutions—and broader thematic sections:

Five different viewpoints to Visualize Art Networks.

Visualizing the network of artists, curtors and exhibition venues

How are artists and exhibition places and curators connected among each other?

The world of contemporary art might have many random aspects, but on an upper level the bits and pieces summarize to network structures and clusters.
All 5 examples of Visualizing Art Networks can be reached directly with sub-domains.

See below details and sub-domains for the examples.

Visualizing Art Networks uses artist-info database to get an image about how artists, curators, and exhibition places are connected through their activities of showing specific artists.

By zooming in and selecting a node you can visualize sub-clusters and see not only the artist’s connection to the center, but as well their connections among each other.
Some are connected with each other members of the sub-cluster, some not.
The search on the left lets you find a specific network member.
The sidebar on the right provides you in its header with a link to switch to the network mebers artist-info page with all in-depth information, shows availabe Exhibiton Annoucnements, Artwork Offers, or Artist-Portfolio, and lets you switch to the network members community channels.

Top 100 Artists Exhibition Statistics

Auction price statistics only offer a very limited insight into the world of contemporary arts.
Since many decades exhibitions are playing a key role in each artist‘s biography as well as for exhibition places, worldwide.
So far, statistics on the artist’s exhibitions worldwide haven’t been available.
Based on more than 410.600 solo- and group exhibitions between 1930 and today by more than 135.800 artists shown in more than 11.150 Galleries, Museums, Non-Profit Place and Collector Venues in more than 1.310 cities in 155 countries in database, our new Artist Exhibition Statistics page shows who was shown most.
It provides like this new insight into the world of contemporary art worldwide.

Statistics Page Details

The Artist Exhibition Statistics page shows
the 100 artists with the highest number of exhibitions in database.
Exhibition Statistics Details
– Statistics of Solo- and Group-Exhibitions,
The artist list is sorted downwards by the total number of exhibitions, which includes group- and solo-exhibitions.
The icons on the left side of the artist’s name indicate available artwork offers, exhibition announcements or an artist portfolio.
– Statistics by Exhibition Place Type
The numbers on the table’s right side display the individual number per exhibition place category,
which are gallery, museum, non-profit, collector, followed by the total number of exhibition places where the exhibitions took place.

Visalizing Art Networks

How are artists and exhibition places and curators connected among each other?

The world of contemporary fine art might have many random aspects, but on an upper level the bits and pieces summarize to network structures and clusters.
It is the first time ever a network graph is used to analyse and describe the world of contemporary art with artists, curators, and exhibition places.
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 Neworks by artist-info is identifying, helping to explore and to develop the valuable connections between artists, curators and exhibition places.
The Visualization identifies, helps to explore, and to develop the valuable connections among the participating artists, curators and exhibition places.

Using Network Graphs

The human eye is able to explore and interpret visual sources like a network graph in much greater depth than it would be possible with lists and tables. Transforming scientific

research results, queries and data analysis into visual graphs provides new insight which is not visible otherwise.
Social Network Analysis (SNA) with network graphs is used to show with nodes and etches the relations of network members, based on their attributes.
It is our starting point for visualizing the world of contemporary art.

Finding a Reliable Source

Although there might be a number of different levels on which artists, curators, exhibition places meet, and other institutions and individuals involved in contemporary art exchange their views and develop their contacts, there is one stable and reliable level, which mirrors these networks.
It is the wide scope of exhibitions of an artist and the wide scope of the many different exhibition places showing artists in a known or new context, following a vision and a new point of view to question a specific status.
Cross-linking all exhibition information enables us to understand the world of contemporary art with the artists, curators and exhibition places as many networks besides one another. The reason the members of these networks were connected among each other are their individual vision, and their concept, to show the artist’s work under known or new conditions.

Filling the Gap

Although the printed biography of an artist provides basic information, it almost never tells, who else was shown in a group exhibition, to be able to see the scope of concept and idea which lead to this exhibition. Listing the exhibition places where an artist did show his work always leads to the question, what makes this venue important for the artist? exhibition histories provide this missing information on the basis of reliable research.
For us exhibition history details are an elementary source for insights and to compare different visions, concepts, approaches and attitudes among the many possibilities to look at the position of artists and their work and exhibition places in the world of contemporary art.

  Visualizing Art Networks

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

Open these interactive examples in a new browser window
  ARTIST ⇔ artists
  ARTIST ⇔ exhibition places
The two views available for an artist are showing how all artists are connected through exhibitions, and how the venues are connected through artists.

  CURATOR ⇔ artists
The view for a specific curator shows this curator, the exhibited artists and their connections among each other through exhibitions.

  EXHIBITION PLACE ⇔ exhibition places
The two views for an exhibition place show how artists are connected among each other, and how the specific venue is connected through artists with other exhibition places.

– Individual Browser Window
Network Visualization is available through an individual sub-URL to be displayed in its own browser tab or window.
To be able to explore the network graph with all its details, the user can zoom in with buttons at the bottom of the browser window. Zooming in will show the node’s names.
Each node can be clicked to filter its relations in connection with central node.
– Side Panes
Each individual selection of a cluster can be searched for member’s names with the search window at left. In the right side pane more details of network members are shown.
These are all members of the selected subset, including a link to the individual page, and some more details like available Exhibition Announcements or Artwork Offers, and community page links like Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, or YouTube. Underneath are listed all members of the displayed network graph.
– Layout Characteristics
The network graph’s layout elements like color, the distance between nodes, or diameter of nodes is used to interpret specific attributes related to a node. These are for example the number of con-nections to other nodes, the number of exhibitions together with the central node to which the whole network graph is related.
– Propagations / Recommendations
Furthermore, the visualized results of our queries include propagations / recommendations for possible new connections.
These nodes are not directly connected with the central node but with a member. They are based on the statistic evaluation of highest number of exhibitions together with the specific member and are shown as ‘outsider’ nodes with a single line near the edge of the displayed visualization.

Martin Blume - 'Vision'

Martin Blume, ‘Vision’, 2004, Auflage 4/25, Schwarzweiß, Baryt, Handabzug, 24 x 20 cm / 9 1/2 x 8 inches

“Eigentlich ist mir die Malerei am nächsten, aber ich bleibe doch letztendlich der, der ich bin: der mit dem Licht zeichnet.”
“I am closer to painting than to anything else. However, at the end I am what I am: A painter who paints with light.”

The magic of photography, which is able to capture a single moment on film, may be on its way to becoming a lost art by virtue of its very omnipresence. Nonetheless, as Walter Benjamin realized, just leafing through a childhood photo album, or close study of the art photography of the past, can still vividly reveal to us the fascinating power of the photographic image.

Douglas Isaac Busch and Martin Blume have mastered the art of still photography in the grand old manner. Their Vestiges project sifts through the remains of an era that the Renaissance termed “the Middle Ages.” A friendship of seven years’ duration between two artists from opposite sides of the Atlantic has resulted in a search for artifacts that seeks to document the cultural roots of both artists. The search, as well as the friendship, has found its visual expression in photographic images of American and European forts from the ninth to the sixteenth centuries. These two artists‘ investigations of Anazi forts in the four Corners region of the U.S. southwest, as well as knights‘ castles in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz and the Alsace region of France, has followed an extraordinary seismographic trail. These two artists were of course not driven by the desire to make archaeological discoveries, nor did they have an aesthetic bee in their bonnet in the manner of Romantic painters who created pictures of the present infused with melancholy. Vestiges is instead an attempt to investigate the wreckage flung at the feet of the angel of history, and to reconstitute this wreckage visually using the unmatched precision of large format photography.

Martin Blume gilt als bedeutendster Schwarz-Weiß Fotokünstler Deutschlands. Der Himmel auf dieser Schwarz-Weiß Fotographie ist eigentlich blau – so das ich zu der Aussage gekommen bin: „Manchmal muss man erkennen, dass der Himmel blau ist“. Dieses Bild hat eine tiefere Aussagekraft – das ist der Ansatz von Martin Blume. Attraktiv ist auch der 3D Effekt des Bildes. Zustand: Die Fotokunst befindet sich in einem einwandfreien Zustand – an den Seitenrändern weist sie leichte Vintage-Mängel auf.

KUNSTHALLE ERFURT - Julian Röder & Robert Capa

CC – Classic Contemporary – Julian Röder & Robert Capa
July 18 – September 28, 2014

As part of its photo exhibition series CC – Classic Contemporary, KUNSTHALLE ERFURT presents a two-person exhibition of works by Julian Röder (*1981) and Robert Capa (1913–1954), curated by Silke Opitz.
Both photographers focus on such themes as “socio-political processes of change” in which “conflict and war” serve as the catalysts or consequences of these processes.

Like Capa, Julian Röder is not only fascinated with the (potential) violence or military engagement, but rather the tensions of human interaction and co-existence which precede these.
Röder is particularly interested in social changes and upheavals that are driven by historic-political events, in other words, in their “real” visible form, which, to some extent, can be attributed to the artist’s background. Yet by focusing on the East-West German conflict, he also documents transformation processes around the world, driven in large part by globalization. In his photos, he presents those empty phrases and catchwords of bygone, post-modern phenomena and their consequences in a very concrete way.
However, Röder’s photos also play on the contrasting aesthetics of paintings of historic battles, advertising images and photo-journalism. He makes reference to our viewing habits and points of view, and consciously creates ambiguity of perspective. This might make his (recent) works appear more artistically motivated than the iconic (war) reporting and propaganda photos by Endre Ernö Friedmann.
As part of its CC – Classic Contemporary series at the Erfurt Kunsthalle, this double exhibition includes almost all of Julian Röder’s past photo series and comparatively presents them alongside selected works by Robert Capa.

It wasn’t only the “Americanised” pseudonym which made Robert Capa a legend. In hindsight, it was his life story and physical appearance which gave the photographer and co-founder of Magnum Photos such charisma, evident even in his self-portraits. These portraits reflect Capa’s eventful life, his politically motivated “bravado and daredevil camera work”. His auratic B/W photos are proof of how “close-up” Capa literally was in each scene. What is also fascinating was his ability to capture that immanently “right” moment – the spectacular moment. Yet Capa was also strongly influenced by the aesthetics of the classical avant-garde (and its proximity to propaganda and advertising), as we see in his photos of life in Russia and that of Ukrainian peasants after World War II.
