We’re pleased to announce our recent collaboration with artist Jonas Lund, who creates paintings, sculpture, photography, websites and performances incorporating data from his studies of art world trends and behavior.
His Chrome extension is called Ranked Browsing, and it allows you to quickly look up the ArtFacts rank of an artist by simply highlighting their name and right clicking. You can also scan entire pages for artist names and the extension will add the rank after each name it finds from the Top 1000 list.
It’s available for free in the extension store. Go on and give it a spin.
Of course we should mention that the team just returned from another successful year at ARCOmadrid. We’re happy to have made new friends and caught up with some old ones, too. A special thank you goes out to everyone who participated in our ARCOmadrid poll – we gathered some interesting results and we’re looking forward to sharing our findings in the coming days.
With that said, we’re rolling out something new this year: a blog!
A few people have mentioned that they’d like to keep up with what’s going on in the office on a more frequent basis. We’ve archived our past newsletters and we’ll start using our blog to announce updates.
We also invite our readers to send us their specific research questions. Who knows, we just might post the answers. For examples, check out our Ask ArtFacts series here and here – and let us know what you would like to see more of.
