Continuing Gretchen’s hack of major art world institutions, taking poetics from time in quarantine, and continuing her use of Sarah Thornton’s Seven Days in the Art World as her guide, this work is on its way to being a top image for the search “best MFA.” Instead of the “traditional path” of arts education, this work explores time, money, and life experience not spent on formal arts education, the artist considering life, love, loss, friends, travel, Russian novels, political engagement, drugs, disappointment, and mentors a great education.
