Introducing two very helpful new tools in time for Art Basel Miami Beach

Compare galleries with ease, and get the data-driven scoop on artists to invest in.

Art Basel Miami Beach opens this week and what better time to introduce not one, but two advantageous new tools powered by Artfacts’ data? Whether you are attending in person, or via the OVR, these new tools are now available to help your researching and purchasing decisions even more.

Gallery Compare Tool.
Long available on an artist’s trend graph, now you can use the comparison tool on a gallery’s trend graph too. Curious about how the ranking of peer galleries (or any gallery) differentiates? Simply click the compare button on a gallery’s trends graph and type in a gallery, or two, or more, that you would like to compare it with.

To explore this, we decided to compare two galleries that are presenting at Art Basel Miami Beach in the Positions sector dedicated to young galleries showcasing solo presentations from emerging artists.

Returning to Art Basel Miami Beach for the third time this year, the Guatemalan gallery Proyectos Ultravioleta is presenting the tropical pop surrealist delights of Pueto Rican artist Radames “Juni” Figueroa.

Conversely in its first foray into the fair, the New York gallery Mrs., is presenting eye-catching sculptures by the Jamaican artist Nickola Pottinger. When looking at the graph above you can see that both galleries have a continuous growth trajectory, and that looks set to continue, if slowing slightly. Both galleries have participated in a significant number of art fairs, with Proyectos Ultravioleta showing at twice as many fairs as Mrs. on average.
