Exploring the BOS20 website, the familiar guides to participating artists' credentials are present - part stock market report, part spring racing guide, with an auction-like summary positioning artwork and artist as valuable cultural investments for the Biennale's visitors (and reputation). This public information is also referenced by influential websites such as Artnet, and Artfacts - organisations who rank artists and institutions for art collectors and institutions.
The graphs below shows information from each artist page on the BOS20 website; name, date of birth, location of birth and current residence (F=female, FF=female/female collaboration, FM=female/male collaboration, M=male, MM=male/male collaboration)
Artists in BOS20 are born in a variety of locations.
Many artists move to central cities such as Berlin, London, Paris, New York and 15 of the listed artists live in more than one city.
Images on each artists page included information about gallery representation, over half of the artists in BOS20 are represented by galleries. A quick search of the first 20 (25%) of artists in BOS20 list revealed that 85% had previously shown in other international biennales.
