Beatrice Glow is an interdisciplinary artist whose work uncovers invisible, suppressed stories that lie in the geopolitical shadows of colonialism and migration. Her practice comprises of sculptural installations, trilingual publishing, participatory performances and lectures, and experiential technologies.
Glow is the recipient of the 2015 Van Lier Visual Art Fellowship at Wave Hill and was named a 2015 Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Finalist. In 2014, she was awarded a Franklin Furnace Fund grant to create the Floating Library—a pop-up, mobile device-free public space aboard the historic Lilac Museum Steamship on the Hudson River in New York City. As a 2008-9 Fulbright Scholar, she traveled to Peru to pursue a research-creation project retracing “coolie” geographies.
Glow is a Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics’ Council Member, and previously was Artist-in-Residence at the LES Studio Program at Artists Alliance Inc, and an A/P/A Institute at NYU Visiting Scholar. Her most recent activities include Aromérica Parfumeur, a solo exhibition at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Chile (2016); The Wayfinding Project at A/P/A Institute at NYU (2016); Rhunhattan at Wave Hill (2015); and a lecture performance at Asia Contemporary Art Week’s Field Meeting Take 2 at the Venice Biennale (2015).
