Emily Prince makes process-driven non-linear maps, which most often manifest in drawing-based installations, sometimes site-specific, and often integrating time. Her work investigates how we as humans process the passage of time and mark those things that are gone. Prince’s work has been exhibited at Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco/New York, Haines Gallery, San Francisco, Kent Gallery, New York, Saatchi Gallery, London UK, The Drawing Center, New York, and Venice Biennale, Italy. She graduated from Stanford University in 2003 with Bachelor’s Degrees in both Studio Art and Psychology and completed her MFA in Art at U. C. Berkeley in 2008. She lives and works in San Francisco.
