Ghost of a Dream
Ghost of a Dream is the collaborative project of Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom who began working together in 2007 shortly after getting married. This collaboration is their full time practice in which they produce work about people’s hopes and dreams out of the ephemera created trying to attain those aspirations. They have had the honor to receive support from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, Joan Mitchell Foundation, Artist Resource Trust, Jerome Foundation and received the first annual Young Masters Art Prize in London. They have received artist residencies in Berlin, Basel, Beijing, France, and venues throughout the US including Bemis Center, ISCP, Smack Mellon, Wassaic Project, the Joan Mitchell Foundation AIR in New Orleans, Elsewhere Museum, and will attend the Rauschenberg Foundation AIR in 2023. They are also currently the Embedded Critics at the Wassaic Project in New York. Ghost of a Dream’s current solo exhibitions are “Tomorrow is Here” at the new MAAM museum in Boston, and “Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution)” at the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill. They have also shown solo exhibitions at CES Gallery, Los Angeles; Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, NY; Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY; Galerie Paris Beijing, Paris, France. Ghost of a Dream’s work has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Vogue Magazine, Hyperallergic, BlouinArtinfo, ArtFCity, W Magazine, Interview Magazine, and World of Interiors. They have also been featured on Good Morning America and the VICE Art Talks series.
