About The Artist

Emilee Lord is a visual and performing artist. She investigates the multiple ways through which a drawing can be made, performed, and defined. She creates quiet, sparse, and repetitive or ritualized long durational performances, installations, works on paper, and dance films. Her current research explores ideas of accumulation, solitude, memory, and drawing as a performative act. At the core of this research is the following question: When is a drawing?
