Andrew Hetrick grew up in a small town of 400 people in rural Wisconsin, where he spent his time milking cows, playing in rocks bands, and washing dishes for Catholic fish fries. After a short stint studying Mortuary Science and selling knives door-to-door, Andrew moved to Saint Paul, MN where he received a BFA from the College of Visual Arts. A politics junkie and avid debater, Hetrick’s work is predominantly politically driven performance and video installation, although he has also studied painting and sculpture. His work has been shown at galleries such as the MAEP gallery at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, as well as the Soap Factory in Minneapolis, MN, and PrØve Gallery in Duluth, MN. Recent exhibitions include the CVA senior show at both the CVA gallery and A/Z gallery in Saint Paul. Hetrick also has curatorial interests as the co-founder and director of the up-and-coming pop-up gallery, <insert>GALLERY, with Joshua Mercil, which seeks to showcase emerging artists and musicians in one-night-only, alternative space exhibitions. Hetrick has temporarily relocated to Washington, DC, to work with Provisions Library, a research, education and production center investigating the intersections of arts and social change. Aside from his writing being featured on Provisions' blog, he has also contributed to the online art journal Quodlibetica.
