artist-info location ID
Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Generic
This new Wikidata property for authority control for art location (art gallery, art museum, art non-profit, foundation) (Q?) would allow a better coverage of arts (Q2018526).
Identifying artists, curators and exhibition places ('location') through exhibition records has the quality of a reliable authority control.
As exhibitions are fundamental to the discourse in Modern and Contemporary Art, making them searchable with artist-info.com enables new possibilities for research and analytics.
It is different to authority control for people based on auction, library, dictionary (e.g. ThiemeBecker, Bénézit, Oxford) or artwork collection records (museums).
We are documenting with artist-info.com solo- and group-exhibitions at exhibition venues (galleries, museums, non-profit) with all participating artists and if possible with the curator from 1880 up to the present, worldwide.
Our sources are exhibition catalogs, archives, and ephemera. The interactive exhibition histories of artist-info show the relational structure and profiles of artists, curators and exhibition venues alike.
We include links to Wikipedia pages of artists, curators and locations on the related artist-info pages (10.431 as of July 8, 2018) for more biographical information as well as an authority control link to VIAF (includes Wikidata) and WorldCat (VIAF or LCCN based) for library holding information (14.108 as of July 8, 2018).
We publish our groundbreaking research based on exhibition records on www.artist-info.com/blog/
artist-info database was started 1993 and first published on the Internet in November 1996. You find as of July 8, 2018: 182.800 artists, 7.504 curators, 12.285 venues in 1.500 cities in 163 countries, 212.501 exhibitions (680.844 edges).
Access to all artist-info.com artist, curator and exhbition venue pages is free (no registration, no charges).

- Comment @THHAP: could you change your examples so that they point to the corresponding Wikidata items? See Wikidata:Property_proposal/A_Church_Near_You_church_ID for an example of how they should be formatted. − Pintoch (talk) 07:45, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
