The 100 entities listed are ranked in order of 'influence' by ArtReview and their "anonymous panel of international artworld figures".
This list is: "[T]he world's definitive guide to the often invisible structures of the current artworld".
SO what are these invisible structures and what do they look like?
In order to find out this project takes each entity on the list and subjects it to a Google Web Search.
The resulting Search Engine Results Page (SERP) acts as a medium through which we can examine (and progressively filter) the list.
Through a manual process of search we discover that the SERPs reveal most of the list entities are 'well known', and so Google's algorithm automatically produces a knowledge panel (KP) for them.
72 KPs are discovered through this process.
It is apparent, however, that list entities consisting of multiple individuals (bodies) yield no KP.
In the interests of Big Data it is deemed 'unfair' that the individuals within these bodies should lose their individual influence just because they entered the list as part of a multi-body entity.
So in the next round all bodies are separated into individuals to see what difference, if any, this makes to the search results.
In the list below the bodies are in bold type.
