Executive Editor, ARTnews

Andrew Russeth has been executive editor of ARTnews since 2014. His writing has appeared in W, New York, Bijutsu Techo, Blau, and Parkett, the websites of the New Yorker and Paper Monument, and catalogues for exhibitions at museums and galleries. He was awarded the Rabkin Prize for visual arts journalism in 2019, and in 2013 was named Critic of the Year in the Rob Pruitt Awards. In 2005 he started 16 Miles of String, a blog about contemporary art and art history in New York that was supported by the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program.

Prior to that, he held positions at Blouin Artinfo and taught elementary school in Manhattan. Among his recent features for ARTnews are a profile of artist Nayland Blake, a diary about just about every show and performance that he saw over the course of one year, a review of Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel in New York, and a deep dive on Newfields, the reconceived Indianapolis Museum of Art.
