Lot 27 - Gretchen Andrew - Contemporary Art Auction Record
Gretchen Andrew hacks systems of power with art, code, and glitter. Gretchen's work dares us to dismiss it. After leaving Silicon Valley for a world that would allow her to be herself, Gretchen became known for her playful hacks on major art world and political institutions, including Frieze, The Whitney Biennial, Artforum, The Turner Prize, and The 2020 Presidential Election. Her work has been recently exhibited at museums in California, Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. Gretchen’s work has recently been featured in Fast Company, Flash Art, The Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Monopol, Wirtschaftswoche, The Los Angeles Times, and The Financial Times. She is currently the artist in residence at The National Gallery X London.
Originally conceived as an experiment (Can the internet make me into an artist?) Gretchen left Silicon Valley in 2012. Since then, a unique merger of traditional mediums and strategic information technology has led her name and visual “vision board” aesthetic to be one of the most recognizable amongst her generation of artists. She trained in London with Billy Childish from 2013-2018.
