In about a week’s time, the high-profile, and often controversial, survey of up-and-coming American artists known as the Whitney Biennial will open in New York. Gretchen is not a part of that show. Instead, her project, Whitney Biennial 2019…Vision Board is beginning its month-long run on the opposite side of the country, at Los Angeles Center for Digital Art. When Gretchen addresses the guests, she refers to her opening as a “celebration and manifestation” of the work. It is the IRL component of a piece that largely lives online, the culmination of months spent expressing her own desire to be part of the Whitney Biennial and subsequently tricking Google into thinking she actually is part of the esteemed exhibition.
