In her video work, Lauren Beck explores relationships between movement and psychology, combining narratives from the worlds of dance, therapeutic culture, and the occult. In her recent works on paper, she uses tropes from Symbolism and Science Fiction as a means to think about devices of landscape and framing.
Beck has held solo exhibitions at Newman Popiashvili Gallery in New York and the Happy Lion in Los Angeles, and her work has been included in group exhibitions at Gavin Brown's Passerby (New York) and the Suburban (Chicago). She also maintains a strong commitment to working with youth filmmakers, both through her involvement with the "Think it! Make it! Screen it!" program at the Logan Center and her work as a teaching artist with Chicago Public Schools.
