This time around we will focus on galleries who have discovered the stars of today.
In this instance discovered refers to: the gallery exhibiting the artist for their first exhibition. And stars refers to artists ranked in the top 1000.
Here, although these galleries have been selected for the number of artists they have discovered in the top ranked 1000, we are sharing the numbers of artists discovered in each ranking category. This is because a number of galleries have discovered artists in multiple categories, and who knows, the artists in the top 10,000 or 100,00 may not be the “stars” of today, but they may well be tomorrow.
