Gretchen Andrew

NFT Magazine's Editorial Director Gretchen Andrew is an artist who hacks systems of power with art, code, glitter and increasingly the written word. Known for her playful hacks on major art world and political institutions, including Frieze, The Whitney Biennial, Artforum, The Turner Prize, and auction record results and Google’s display of the 2020 presidential election results. In these digital performances she reimagines reality with art and desire. The feminine and trivialized materials of her Vision Boards, Affirmation Ads, and NFT Thirst Trap Glitch Gifs, purposefully clash with the male-dominated worlds of AI, programming, and political control they also operate within. Her new series, deGenerative Art will be released at Art Basel Miami 2023. Gretchen 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 been featured in Fast Company, Flash Art, CNN, The Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Monopol, Wirtschaftswoche, The Los Angeles Times, and The Financial Times. She has had solo exhibitions at Francisco Carolinum Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Monterey Museum of Art, The Santa Monica Museum of art The National Gallery X London. Gretchen’s studio project Crypto Mermaids seeks to empower those who feel isolated from Web3 through technical and financial education.
