Viennacontemporary 2022

8 – 11 September 2022

Solo presentation by Gretchen Andrew.

Gretchen Andrew hacks systems of power with art, code and glitter. She is best known for her playful hacks on major art world and political institutions, including Frieze, The Whitney Biennial, Artforum, The Turner Prize, and 2020 presidential election. In these digital performances she reimagines reality with art and desire. She does this by making assemblage “vision boards” that she programs to become top internet search results. The feminine and trivialized materials of her vision boards purposefully clash with the male-dominated worlds of AI, programming, and political control they also operate within. She trained in London with the artist Billy Childish from 2012-2017. In 2018 the V&A Museum released her book Search Engine Art. 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. Since 2021 her Vision Boards have been the center of two solo museum shows, both of which aquired works into their collection, and featured in her current residency at The National Gallery X London.
