Extra Curricular Studio Series: Ghost of a Dream

Ghost of a Dream is the collaboration of Lauren Was and Adam Ekstrom. The multi-disciplinary duo conceptually tackles the "American Dream" in a series of massive and meticulously constructed installations made from the rejected ephemera of American capitalism. Whether it be a Trump Casino or Miami Art Basil, Ghost of a Dream re-animates collected detritus through video, sculpture, painting, and collage, giving new life to the material along with whimsical beauty and societal introspection.

Extra Curricular Studio Series is curated by Liz Zito and aims to highlight a daily studio practice outside the MFA setting. Optional closed critiques are offered so students can further explore components of developing their career while getting feedback on their current practice.
