This poster is a visualization of all untitled artwork on paper that the Tate Gallery of London has acquired from 2000–2013 (data for the last 4 years was unavailable) using the open API provided by the gallery. Along the timeline, each line represents a single artwork, and where the line ends corresponds to the method of how the artwork was produced (acrylic, watercolor, oil, etc.). The value of each line (white for female artists and dark grey for males) shows the gender distribution of artists represented in the gallery. This poster serves as an exploratory visual inquiry into the nature of museum archives through a data vis approach.
