107th CAA Annual Conference
Art and Artificial Intelligence Session

This is the accompanying webpage for the paper titled "Social Media Mining for the Analysis of the Art World" that will be presented in the Art and Artificial Intelligence Session of the 107th CAA Annual Conference.

In this paper a methodology for constructing a network that maps the structure of the artworld is proposed. It is based on mining Twitter in an attempt to identify the artworld actors (artists, museums, galleries, curators, etc.) as they exist online and discover connections amongst them. The ability to obtain a map the artworld from social media data is regarded as the first essential step for further exploring how Artificial Intelligence techniques can elaborate on the understanding of the artworld.

The different artworld networks constructed with our proposed methodology are shown below as interactive graphs so that they can be explored in more detail.
