Adam Eckstrom is half of the artist collaborative, Ghost of a Dream, with Lauren Was. The collaborative’s work embodies the essence of opulence while being constructed of materials that typically end up in the trash. They mine popular culture searching for discarded materials that people use trying to reach their goals. Whether it is a Hollywood film that transports the viewer into a dream reality, a travel poster promising a luxurious vacation, or a lottery ticket that gives the possibility of a future full of rich decadence; they use these remnants to both re-create people’s dreams, and portray the dreamer. They currently have a solo exhibition at the MAAM museum and have an exhibition at Galerie Paris-Beijing opening in 2021. They have recently been included in exhibitions at Crystal Bridges Museum, Telfair Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Dixon Gallery and Gardens Museum, Frist Center for Visual Arts, The Courtauld, and The Mint. Other recent solo exhibitions include CES Gallery, Smack Mellon, and 601Artspace. Ghost of a Dream has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue Magazine, Hyperallergic, BlouinArtinfo, ArtFCity, W Magazine, Interview Magazine, World of Interiors, VICE Art Talks as a documentary, and Southern Foodways alliance as a short film.
