Believe Inn presents award winning artist collective, 83ism's new multi media installation and new paintings by Lauren Feece.

After receiving the juried award for best 3-dimensional work at last year's ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, 83ism (formerly, ABCD 83) returns to Believe Inn with a fun new collaborative art installation. “NOW SEE HEAR” is a video/sound installation involving over 30 artists. Participants were given templates to work with and asked to submit video content to be projected onto a very minimal sculpture - all with little idea what the other artists may submit. The content will all be arranged into a final edit, including a 4 channel sound mix by sound designer, Zach Goheen. The end result is expected to be an extremely immersive sort of “channel surfing” experience. 

Participating artists:

Alberto Aguilar, Anthony Allen, Anthony Esquivel, Anthony Lewellen, Brian Dressel, Brian Steckel, Catie Olson, Chris Silva, Chuck Pryzbyl, Colby Byrn, Dan Ezra Lang, Daniel Bigelow, Edra Soto, Eli Feuerstein, Jake Myers, James Jankowiak, Jay Esangga, Jeremy Pettis, Joe Esquivel, John Heenan, Josh Grotto, Julie Murphy, Kenny Klopack, Luftwerk, Madeleine Aguilar, Marc Silva, Marvin Tate, Nicole Antonopulos, Nick Adam, Peter Casey, Prashant Bhargava, Ryan Pohanic, Solo R.M., Thor, Tom Burtonwood, Zach Goheen.

In the rear room of Believe Inn, Lauren Feece will exhibit work from a new series of paintings on canvas. Lauren has returned her focus to magical spaces of abstraction and nature, where she seeks to recapture the sense of depth and resonance which she experiences during her most quiet-minded and lucid experiences of reality.

-----------------------------------------------------

83ism is a Chicago based art collective initiated by Anthony Lewellen, Brian Steckel, Chris Silva & David Cuesta. 83ism creates and facilitates collaborative projects in a variety of media.

Lauren Feece has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States including Gallery Lorenzo Homar (Philadelphia, PA), Perihelion Arts, (Phoenix, AZ) & Rowland Contemporary (Chicago). Her work has been featured in various international publications including Elle Girl (Korea), Tactile (Gestalten Press) and Raw Material=Art (Thames & Hudson).

If you're a fan of my artwork, please show some love by picking up a copy of my new self published book. You can view the entire book in the preview below (unfortunately it only shows a page at a time, and the page relationships are very nice). Hardcover, 83 pages, an introductory essay by Damien James and besides a few other pages of text the rest is just full color artwork by me and my buddies. It's an artful book full of art designed for quality quiet time away from a computer screen. I feel good about it and I think you will too. I know it's an expensive book, (I'm only making $10 per book) but you can get free shipping if you use the code "FREESHIP" by December 10th...guaranteed to arrive by the 24th.

Story
Introduction

I am a passionate individual trying to live a life that gives priority to following my creative muse while contributing positively to the evolution of the collective. I see art as a way of thinking and acting in the world rather than merely a stylistic or material practice. I am concerned with how people relate to the self, to each other and to their environment. I am saddened by cruelty, xenophobia and greed. I aim to give artistic presence to my humanity and concern.


I am interested in the visually poetic, employ ambiguity in my work and strive to express the essence rather than the details. I see opportunities in accidents, enjoy unusual combinations of materials, the unpredictable outcomes of collaboration and the general adventure of the creative process.


I believe that collective consciousness is infinitely more important than individual ego. My priority as an artist is not to receive accolades and praise for my talents, but rather to inspire others to help to create a just and meaningful world. I am more interested in seeing what “we” can do than showing what “I” can do.

I also really like drinking beer.
