Forget what art ‘should’ be, come to this pARTy and see what art ‘could’ be. AD HOC presents FRIENDS FOREVER, an interactive art installation by ultra-optimists Casey VanHecke + Brian Edward Selke.
Using balloons, bows and neon signs, Casey + Brian will transform Ad Hoc’s gallery space into a sincerely inclusive pARTy, where the glass is always half-full…of beer. Friends, new and old, are invited to celebrate ideas and engage in an experience that reevaluates the conventional relationship between art and audience.
FRIENDS FOREVER is the first installation of the art duo’s new collaborative project ULTRA-OPTIMISM, art made to make you feel loved. See something new and your dreams will come true. Art is your friend, and your friends love you forever.
Casey + Brian are Chicago based multi-media artists who have worked side-by-side for years. Together they co-founded the ongoing curatorial project, BEST FRIENDS GALLERY.
