The artist ranking weighs exhibitions by using a special algorithm. Each exhibition automatically gains a certain value, called points. On a yearly basis all artists participating in exhibitions receive the sum of the points of the exhibitions involved. The higher the amount of points for an individual artist, the higher is his rank. The artist with the highest number of points will be the number 1, the artist with the second most points will be number 2 and so on.
Art institutions which collect or represent famous artists are considered more important than others. Exhibitions held in a museum with a great collection of famous artists like the 'Centre Pompidou' will receive more points than an relatively unknown private gallery.
Famous artists establish the basis of the artist ranking system since they are collected by museums or represented by galleries on an international scale. Institutions, cities and finally all exhibitions gain their points from the number and the worth of famous artists linked to them.
Since its start in 2001, ArtFacts.Net™ developed a sophisticated artist database through its collaboration with international art fairs, galleries, museums and artists.
