There is a lot of information out there now that artists can access, but Axisweb is meatier.
I’ve used Axis as an educational resource. If you’re teaching postgraduates, it’s a good place to point them to for research. I’ve used it a lot myself with my curating activities to research artists. As a tool, Axisweb is extremely useful.
I’ve had people over the years tell me that they saw my work on Axis, it increases the visibility of artists, and I think that is one of the main challenges for people that are just graduating, it’s getting that visibility on a credible or validated umbrella. I think that having work accepted onto the Axisweb database is a feather in their caps because it has that credibility, and I think that’s where its value is.
