The financially strapped Detroit Institute of Arts just missed the top 100 museums
Last year, Norway celebrated the birth of its most famous artist. The sesquicentennial exhibition “Edvard Munch 150” at the National Gallery, Oslo, was the main event, co-organised by the National Museum and the Munch Museum. It attracted 2,918 visitors a day. But, a version of one Munch painting, albeit his most famous work, The Scream, drew 5,528 visitors a day when on loan to New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Russia’s love affair with Italian art was confirmed by the crowds that flocked to see “From Guercino to Caravaggio” at the Hermitage. The paintings collected by the late Denis Mahon and donated to Italian institutions attracted 11,122 a day, but as entry is included with general admission, the figure reflects the number of people in the St Petersburg museum on any given day. London’s Tate Modern reports that 11,670 visitors a day went to see a video installation by William Kentridge in the Tanks, the former oil

Free-entry blockbusters
For free exhibitions, Rio de Janeiro’s Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil again comes top of our survey. Its most popular show “Impressionism: Paris and Modernity”, featuring loans from the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, drew 8,099 visitors a day, repaying the $5.6m cost of bringing works by Manet, Degas and Monet and others to Rio and to its branch in São Paulo the year before. The artists in the centre’s next most popular show are unknown and from China, the so-called “peasant da Vincis” brought to the world’s attention by international star Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. A show about animation starring cartoon favourites Betty Boop and Popeye, among others, also did well at the Rio venue.

Asian art is in the ascendancy globally, while in Europe, Salvador Dalí reigns supreme. By Javier Pes and Emily Sharpe

utch Old Masters from the Mauritshuis, the Hague, on the Tokyo leg of a world tour topped our international survey of exhibitions in 2012. In 2013, the top two paying shows were again in Asia. In Taipei, loans of ancient gold, jade and bronze artefacts from mainland China alongside works in the collection of the National Palace Museum pulled in the crowds (10,946 a day) for its “Western Zhou Dynasty” show. Paintings from the Lingnan school of the 19th and 20th century attracted almost as many visitors (10,711 a day) to the same institution. Europe witnessed a “Dalí” double hit. In Paris and Madrid the show was the top-paying exhibition. In the French capital, it broke the Centre Pompidou’s daily attendance record. Last year, 7,364 people a day went to see the Spanish artist’s work (790,000 in total). But in 1979, its first Dalí exhibition attracted more visitors in total (900,000). In Madrid, “Dalí” also saw queues snaking outside the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. But the show’s 6,615 visitors a day did not beat the record set by the Picassos lent by the Musée Picasso, Paris, in 2008.

Taipei takes top spot with loans from China

Loans to China of Fabergé eggs from the Kremlin Museums in Moscow attracted 5,967 visitors a day to the Shanghai Museum, which is free to enter, putting it among the top ten best-attended shows. Paintings by Raphael travelled from the Uffizi for a sure-fire paying blockbuster in Tokyo at the National Museum of Western Art, boosted by loans from the Vatican Museums as well as the Musée du Louvre and the Museo del Prado in Madrid, among other institutions. The show attracted 6,172 visitors a day (entry included with general admission). This is 1,800 more than the Louvre attracted with an exhibition of late works by the Renaissance master.

The daily figures are calculated automatically by our database, which computes the number of days an exhibition was open using the following formula: total number of days between start date and end date, divided by seven, multiplied by the number of days per week the institution is open, minus exceptional closures. All data used was supplied by the institutions concerned. Some institutions offer a number of exhibitions for a single ticket: these are shown as one entry. Exhibitions that were free to visit, ie, neither the museum nor the show had an entry fee, are indicated with an asterisk (Ɇ). The Detroit Institute of Arts, which under the leadership of Graham Beal continues the good fight against a forced sale of works in its collection, just missed the top 100 museums with 594,267 visitors, up from 429,000 in 2011. It came 102nd. As with attendance at exhibitions, there are anomalies with institutions. Museums that are part of larger visitor destinations are difficult to compare with their stand alone peers. The most striking example of this is in Beijing’s Forbidden City where the Palace Museum complex had a total attendance of 14.6 million visitors last year. This survey is only possible thanks to the work of numerous press officers and their colleagues who collated and provided us with the attendance data for around 1,800 exhibitions and around 500 museums to complete this yearon-year survey.

Europe’s most-attended exhibition was “Dalí” at Centre Pompidou in Paris, closely followed by its presentation at Madrid’s Reina Sofía (above); the Surrealist at the opening of the Pompidou’s retrospective in 1979; “Western Zhou Dynasty” at Taipei’s National Palace Museum

In a category of its own is the Nara National Museum’s annual temple treasure show. Last year’s selection, including a zither and incense burner, drew 14,743 visitors/pilgrims a day. ble contributing factors. In Madrid, the Prado had a disappointing year, falling from 3.1 million to 2.3 million, despite Monday openings. But the sun shone on the nearby Reina Sofía, boosted by “Dalí”, its attendance rose to 3.2 million (up from 2.5 million in 2012). In Paris, however, the Spanish artist’s appeal could not stop the Centre Pompidou’s attendance dipping slightly by around 55,000 to 3.7 million after a steady rise over the past five years. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, saw its admission just top the three million mark after a dip last year. No comfort for New Yorkers who think it is always overcrowded. Around 80% of international tourists to the Netherlands only visit Amsterdam, which is a boon to the city’s museums. The Rijksmuseum fully reopened in April after its decade-long modernisation and in eight months its attendance exceeded two million. A new museum, MuCEM in Marseilles, which opened last June and focuses on European culture, had a strong first year, with 1.8 million visitors in its first six months. This was no doubt helped by the fact that the city was one of the European Capitals of Culture in 2013. New museums tend to see a slight fall in visitors after their inaugural year, but the Museo

Soumaya in Mexico City, the billionaire Carlos Slim’s private museum, broke the one million mark. The non-charging museum attracted 1.1 million visitors, up from 833,000, which bodes well for another private institution, the Museo Jumex, which opened nearby last November. Its founder, Eugenio Lopez, is on the board of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. The trustees will be hoping Philippe Vergne, the new director, will reverse the institution’s plunging attendance, down from 248,000 in 2012 to 173,000 in 2013—less than the Norton Simon Museum of Art in nearby Pasadena. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s attendance is a respectable 1.2 million. Five years ago it was little more than half that figure.

Louvre on top, again
The Louvre has topped our list of best-attended art museums since we began surveying overall attendance six years ago. Even with around 500,000 fewer visitors last year (after a recordbreaking 2012), the Louvre retains its pole position with an annual attendance of 9.3 million. The British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art swopped places in 2013. The free London institution saw its attendance rise to 6.7 million while its peer in New York (voluntary admission $25), saw attendance rise to 6.2 million, helped by being open seven days a week since last July. The National Gallery, London, had a bumper year with six million visitors without a blockbuster show. The Tate Modern, despite a retrospective of works by Lichtenstein, saw its visitor numbers fall to 4.8 million from 5.3 million in 2012. The closure of the Tanks to allow its extension to be completed, and the end of the Unilever series in the Turbine Hall, were proba-

• The French flair for organising thematic and survey
shows was evident in 2013. French institutions organised the three most visited shows in this category. “Elles: Women Artists in the Pompidou Collection” featured works by the likes of Sonia Delaunay, Frida Kahlo, Dora Maar, Diane Arbus, Marina Abramovic and Louise Bourgeois. The combination proved a hit at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, Rio, attracting 5,657 visitors a day to the free exhibition. More than 5,000 visitors per day went to the Shanghai Museum, which is also free to enter, to see its first exhibition of art from Central Africa. “Congo River: Root Carving Art” was drawn from “Dynamo” at the Grand Palais, Paris the collection of the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris. Back in Paris, the Musée d’Orsay presented “The Angel of the Odd”, a show of so-called “dark Romanticism” with a title inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, that proved popular with 4,095 daily visitors. Also popular, and again in the French capital, were works by Alexander Calder, Jeppe Hein, Carsten Höller, Anish Kapoor and Alexander Rodchenko, among others, that filled all 3,700 sq. m of the Grand Palais in “Dynamo”, an exhibition exploring 100 years of light and motion in art.

TOP TEN PHOTOGRAPHY
• America’s enduring appetite for photography sings out from the
top ten in this category, with six shows from US museums. Indeed, 13 of the 20 most popular photography shows were held in the US: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Washington, DC, and Atlanta museums all feature. MoMA’s annual survey of new photography tops the list, although its figures dropped by almost 1,000 visitors a day compared with last year. Proving the appeal of key figures in photographic history, Bill Brandt gained numbers normally associated with Picasso and Matisse for his show at MoMA. The museum again proved its pre-eminence in terms of photographic exhibitions, with the two best-attended shows—it had two of the top four shows in this category last year, too. Other standout shows were “Light from the Middle East” at the V&A, showing public support for the museum’s engagement with Middle Eastern culture, an exhibition dedicated to the photojournalist Adriana Lestido in her native Argentina, and the Prix Pictet Bill Brandt’s Jean Dubuffet, 1960, photography prize at Istanbul Modern.

Exhibition & museum attendance survey
TOP TEN IMPRESSIONIST & MODERN
• The unwavering international appeal of Impressionism is
confirmed in this category, with a show in Rio de Janeiro and the two versions of the “Impressionism and Fashion” exhibition in New York and Paris all making the top ten. Otherwise, the category is dominated by pre-Second World War artists. Strikingly, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, and Tate Modern versions of the same Lichtenstein show are not even in the top 20, with the former achieving 160,000 and the latter 315,000 visitors. Dalí’s popular appeal is reflected in the extraordinary figures for the two versions of the major exhibition at the Pompidou and the Reina Sofía, Madrid—the Paris museum edged it on daily and overall figures, with close to 800,000 people seeing the exhibition. Meanwhile, the show of works by Matisse that drew close to 500,000 visitors to the Pompidou in 2012 repeated the feat at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Matisse’s old rival Picasso brought impressive crowds to the Guggenheim and also to the Palazzo Reale, Milan, where the touring selection of works from the Musée Picasso in Paris attracted 4,287 visitors a day. While the contemporary category is dominated by free exhibitions, only one of this category’s top ten had no charge. B.L.

TOP 15 BIG TICKET
• Our “big ticket” category includes
exhibitions for which admission includes David Bowie at the entrance to Art Gallery of Ontario other attractions, such as the Half the number who saw grounds of the rock star in London, but Versailles the Canadian show drew or, in the more daily visitors in its case of the much shorter run National Folk Museum of Korea, the Gyeongbokgung Palace. It also includes shows where entrance to the museum includes special exhibitions that are not counted separately, such as in the case of the Hermitage and the Uffizi. Like last year’s survey, we have also included shows that do not adhere to the traditional exhibition format, such as performances and biennials. Versailles reclaims the top spot with a display of sculptures by the Arte Povera artist Giuseppe Penone, which was seen by 15,775 visitors a day—no doubt helped by the fact that the show was staged during high tourist season. Works, including a helicopter festooned with feathers, by the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos exhibited in the palace, Penone at Versailles: 2.2 million people visited the château attracted 3,177 daily visitors. The former French royal palace was ousted from pole position in our 2012 survey by Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall commission. The London institution comes in second with a film by William Kentridge, which was shown in the Tanks. E.S.

THE ART NEWSPAPER SPECIAL REPORT Spring/summer 2014

VISITOR FIGURES 2013
TOP TEN CONTEMPORARY
• Two institutions dominate
the contemporary category and, although both are free to enter, they otherwise take distinct approaches to their shows: the Saatchi Gallery’s exhibitions are generally on for longer than the average: “Gaiety Is the Most Outstanding Feature of the Soviet Union” ran for more than six months, while the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil’s exhibitions are relatively short and sharp, lasting between six weeks and two months. The breadth of the shows that hold the top two places indicates that a similar audience attends all the centre’s shows, rather than the swamped blockbusters and quieter exhibitions found at many museums and galleries. The same is true of the Saatchi Gallery’s exhibitions: notably, two of its top-ten shows were from Charles Saatchi’s collection, while two others were exhibitions organised and presented by institutions that hire a floor of the gallery. (Without an accurate breakdown of the attendance, it is not possible to judge what proportion of the gallery’s visitors are attending the gallery’s regular corporate events and how many are daily gallery-goers, but the gallery can feel quite empty on a weekday.) In terms of the charging shows, it is significant that two American artists who emerged in the 1960s—Oldenberg and Turrell—achieved more than 5,000 visitors a day for their shows at MoMA and the Guggenheim.

TOP TEN DECORATIVE ARTS
• Fashion and costume shows have dominated the decorative category in
recent years, the high-water mark being set by the record-breaking Alexander McQueen show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in 2011, which drew more than 8,000 visitors a day. The Met’s “Punk” exhibition didn’t quite scale those heights, but still welcomed an impressive 4,800 daily visitors. “Hollywood Costume” at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum was one of the most popular shows in the museum’s history, as people flocked to see outfits worn by legendary film characters such as Indiana Jones, Holly Golightly and Darth Vader. However, the Met and V&A could not match the number of visitors to the Shanghai Museum. Almost 6,000 people a day went to see objects by Fabergé from the Kremlin Museums, including Easter eggs created for the Russian imperial family (right, Moscow Kremlin Easter Egg, 1904). T.S.

Exhibition & museum attendance survey
CITIES LONDON, NEW YORK, PARIS
• A Roy Lichtenstein retrospective proved a bigger draw in Paris than it did in London, with 5,091 visitors a day at the Centre Pompidou and 3,290 at Tate Modern. But in Paris, neither Lichtenstein nor Edward Hopper at the Grand Palais could match the appeal of Salvador Dalí at the Top spot in New York: James Turrell at the Guggenheim Museum Pompidou. Meanwhile in London, portraits by Manet at the Royal Academy proved the best-attended paying show, ahead of Lichtenstein’s Pop art at Tate Modern. Beloved Hair at the But the programme of free exhibitions on offer at the Saatchi Gallery, Musée Quai Branly, Paris which included art on paper, works from Russia and the Hugo Boss brand, attracted on average around 5,000 visitors a day, making them the top five shows overall in the British capital. (The collector Charles Saatchi has something to remember 2013 for other than trial by Curled, slicked, dyed and media.) In New York, the Museum of Modern Art typically organises the perfectly coiffed: more than top four or five best-attended shows but in 2013 James Turrell’s transfor1,000 years of hair culture mation of the Guggenheim spiral put it in the top spot. “Impressionism, examined, dissected and Fashion and Modernity” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, its Matisse presented and punk fashion shows all made the city’s top ten. At MoMA, two Oldenburg installations and Munch’s The Scream were its biggest draws. J.P.

TOP TEN OLD MASTERS
• One can be sure every year that the top ten exhibitions of
Old Masters will conform to particular phenomena: they will always include some Italian Renaissance and Baroque exhibitions; will always include some Dutch/Netherlandish 17th-century exhibitions (especially any with the magic name “Vermeer” in the title); some will always occur in Japan (three times in 2013). In the case of the last phenomenon, one can see that the show of works from the Mauritshuis, which was not only the topmost Old Masters show in 2012, but also the most highly attended of all exhibitions worldwide (attracting 10,573 visitors a day) when it was shown in Tokyo, dropped to second place last year—drawing 300,000 fewer visitors to the Kobe leg of the Japanese tour. Given the huge attendances in Japan, one wonders why the country has not produced more of its own experts on these periods? D.L.

TOP TEN MEDIEVAL
• Medieval (art) history has never held centre stage in
schools and universities, and, sadly, academic expertise and popular interest continue the decline of the past 20 to 30 years, seen once again by the fact that Medieval shows fail to create a full top ten. Displays of illuminated manuscripts take four places, no doubt because they are easily portable and displayed. The Getty has the advantage over many museums in having an exceptional collection and the expertise of Thomas Kren, a manuscript specialist and associate director of collections, and a full-time staff of three curators of Medieval manuscripts. The National Art Center in Tokyo (but interestingly not the Osaka Museum where the show travelled) and the National Museum of Fine Arts, Quebec, both The Lady and the Unicorn, around 1484 profited from refurbishments at Paris’s Musée de Cluny that allowed the restored Unicorn Tapestries to have an outing to Japan and other items to Canada. The tapestries are now back on display in the Parisian museum in a specially designed room. D.L.

TOP TEN ASIAN ART
• Almost 11,000 people a day, a record for any exhibition in
2013, came to view ancient artefacts from Western Zhou period China (1046-771BC) at Taipei’s National Palace Museum. This figure was almost matched by the institution’s survey of Lingnan School painting, with both shows benefiting from the inclusion of important loans from museums on mainland China. In Japan, a rare chance to view the decorated 17th-century panels and screens from the collection of the Kyoto Imperial Palace and Nijo Castle drew thousands to the Tokyo National Museum, and was the museum’s most visited show of year, attracting nearly 6,000 visitors per day. In May 2013, The Art Newspaper reported that interest in traditional ink painting has never been greater and that the Chinese government was actively supporting ink art; four of the top ten exhibitions in this category feature calligraphy.

TOP TEN ANTIQUITIES
• Nearly 940,000 people went to see the Cyrus Cylinder, a
2,500-year-old cuneiform tablet often called the first charter of human rights, during the 12 months it was on display in Washington, DC—the first (and longest) stop in its five-city tour of the US. Although this is 340,000 more than the total number who went to Berlin to see an exhibition marking the centenary of the discovery of the striking, polychrome bust of Egypt’s Queen Nefertiti (right), with a daily average of 4,687, the German show tops our list in the antiquities category. Berlin also claims the second spot with a show exploring the ancient city of Uruk in present-day Iraq. A British Museum exhibition on the Roman cities buried during a volcanic eruption in AD79, which featured many loans from Italy, takes the third position. It was the first major show on the subject to be staged in the UK capital in 40 years. E.S.

TOP TEN ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
• New York’s MoMA, which established the world’s first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design in 1932, has four shows in this top ten. Its surveys of work by Anish Kapoor at architects Labrouste and Le MCA Australia Corbusier top the rankings, the lesser-known 19th-century architect proving marginally more popular.

TOP TEN 19TH-CENTURY ART
• It is customary to find that the most attended exhibitions
of 19th-century art are monographic shows, and 2013 was no exception with five out of ten dedicated to single artists: Manet, Turner (twice, and once more in a three-person show on English landscape painters at the Royal Academy), Whistler and the architect and painter Baltard. It is interesting that, compared with the huge attendances at Old Master shows, those of 19th-century European art (excluding Impressionist and Modern) do not attract Japanese audiences. The Pre-Raphaelites, however, are guaranteed crowd-pullers: 2,727 people a day went to see the first major survey of the Victorian group in the US, more than went to a show on the English artists in London. The Musée de l’Orangerie claims the second spot with show on a group of Italian artists regarded as the initiators of modern Italian painting. D.L.
