Alexxa Gotthardt is a writer, editor, and project manager specializing in art and culture. She has written extensively about contemporary artists, art history, photography, design, architecture, and visual culture for publications like Artsy, Surface, and Gray, and has interviewed artists and designers ranging from Taryn Simon and Genevieve Gaignard to Maria Pergay and Alex Katz.
At Artsy, she also served as Project Manager for two video projects: “Behind the Biennale” (2015) a series of 15 videos directed by Oscar Boyson and Poppy de Villeneuve exploring the history and influence of the Venice Biennale, and “The Art Market (In Four Parts)” (2016), a series pulling back the curtain on four aspects of the art market: auctions, galleries, patrons, and art fairs.
At the beginning of her career, she worked for Deitch Projects, where she served as Project Manager for Live the Art (2014), a monograph written by Jeffrey Deitch, designed by Stefan Sagmeister, and published by Rizzoli.
She is originally from the small town of Hudson, Ohio, graduated from Middlebury College with a degree in Art History, and lived for 10 years in Brooklyn, New York. These days, she’s based in Los Angeles where she regularly surfs and eats copious amounts of soft serve.
