Drawing in Canadian Art
My Drawing, "Crash", in the Futures issue of Canadian Art accompanying this incredible piece by Alexandra Molotkow. "The condition of being alive now is infinite accessible worlds at once. Realities, and priorities, reconfigure by day, by hour, by tab. Now one of arts most vital functions is to crystallize a single world for a fixed and reproducible duration."

The Transformational Makeover Salon at PULSE
The Transformational Makeover Salon is traveling to Miami as a commissioned project for PULSE art fair! On December 1, the opening day of the fair, Prince will be taking appointments in the salon, inviting participants to undergo Transformational Makeovers. The salon installation and makeover documentation will be on view for the duration of the fair.
Check out PULSE Projects for more info.
After much experimentation and deliberation, I am so proud to be releasing my first collection of functional ceramics! These extruded and hand-built vessels are intended to bring awareness to the act of choosing, placing, arranging, and compartmentalizing. The forms are inspired by 17th Century Dutch tulip vases and retro futurist spacecraft and architecture.

The Transformational Makeover Salon
In Limbo presents Erica Prince’s Transformational Makeover Salon, a relational project and installation. Prince will be taking private appointments in the salon, inviting participants to undergo Transformational Makeovers. The Transformational Makeover projects (ongoing since 2014) are about experimenting with physical appearance in an effort to gain perspective on one's everyday self. They are not about beauty, but focus instead on the liberating opportunity to become something else for a moment.

things you can't unthink at The Banff Centre
Walter Phillips Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition things you can’t unthink, featuring four female artists, Sara Cwynar (New York City), Eunice Luk (Toronto), Virginia Lee Montgomery (New York City) and Erica Prince (New York City). The exhibition speculates on conventional materials and making, emphasized through constellations of unusual and familiar objects. Curiously shaped ceramics, mirrored pools, former partitions from Yale University’s Particle Accelerator, and video coalesce in the space of the exhibition. things you can’t unthink reflects the inconsistencies and contradictions of philosophical fields – new materialism and object-oriented ontology – which are still in flux. Works included speak to innovation, craft, history and science, as well the use of artistic materials – clay, paint, found objects and precious metals – and the ways in which they are employed in the making of artworks.
Some Thoughts on Unthinking by Peta Rake for the exhibition catalogue.
January 23 - May 22, 2016
Opening Reception, Friday January 29, 5:00- 8:00

The Felt Book
Slip In was recently featured in The Institute for New Feeling's FELT BOOK as an Exercise in Self Actualization. The FELT BOOK is a collaborative publication featuring a collection of home remedies created by 90+ invited artists. Each artist is asked to take on the IfNf mission statement: to explore "new ways of feeling, and ways of feeling new." The FELT BOOK has been featured in Hyperallergic, Clock Tower Radio, Art Hopper, and Westword.
I wrote an exhibition review of Julia Feyrer and Tamara Henderson's Consider The Belvedere at ICA Philadelphia. Dark dreams, alchemical mixtures and regurgitated materiality abound.

AUX Performance Space
Co-organized by AUX Curatorial Fellow Whitney Kimball
I am pleased to announce the beginning of my Transformational Makeovers series, an ongoing project in Philadelphia and New York.
Participants are invited to fill out a preliminary survey, which partially determines the direction of their makeover. Participants will meet me for a consultation, "before selfies", and then the transformation begins. A post-makeover survey and "after selfies" determine the results of the transformation.
If you live in the Philadelphia/New York area and are interested in participating, please email.
Ongoing from Fall 2014.
