participatory installation & opening of "Map of the EU Net Art Vision Board" at router.gallery
About the event
On occasion of the opening of Gretchen Andrew's exhibition "Map of the EU Net Art Vision Board" at router.gallery, panke.gallery is hosting a participatory installation with glue, glittery, magazines, crafts, and non ironic desire. Visitors to the gallery are invited to adhere words and symbols of encouragement, desire and motivation in efforts to transform the gallery’s exterior into a vision board, collectively imagining and celebrating a hoped-for future.
The installation will be a larger, community version of the one Gretchen created in her search engine art process.
Please register for the event so we can plan accordingly. Email: noemi.garay(at)panke.gallery

About the Artist
Gretchen Andrew manipulates systems of power with art, glitter and code. 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 The Next American President. 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 Flash Art, The Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Monopol, Fast Company, Wirtschaftswoche, The Los Angeles Times, and The Financial Times.
