About The Artist

About The Artist

Emilee Lord is a visual and performing artist working with language, somatic and experiential movement practice and the seductive nature of the repetitive line. She creates quiet, sparse, and linear works on paper, installations, and multimedia performances. Her current research explores ideas of place or placelessness, solitude, stillness, and drawing as a performative act.

She received her BA from Bennington College, in sculpture and dance - 2004 and her MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art - 2007. She has been an artist in residence at Vermont Studio Center, Santa Fe Art Institute, Jentel Artist Residency, and SIM in Reykjavik, Iceland.

She has exhibited both nationally and internationally including Santa Fe, New York, Philadelphia, Reykjavik, and Toronto.

She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
