Beatrice Glow is a Visiting Artist-in-Residence at Yale-NUS College and is teaching the module “Media Arts for Just Futures”.

During her residency at Yale-NUS College, artist Beatrice Glow  will use multi-sensory approaches, ranging from experiential technology to olfactory art. Through collaborative artistic methods she will work with students and community members to research the circulation of people, objects and cultures, focusing on multivalent relationships between Chinese decorative arts, migration flows in Southeast Asia and global cultural productions.

In service of public history and a more socially and environmentally just future, Beatrice often co-labours with scholars, scientists and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. Her ongoing research into the social histories of plants sketches vignettes about the entangled realities of dispossession, enslavement, migrations and extractive economies.

Her solo exhibitions include Forts and Flowers, Taipei Contemporary Art Center, Taiwan, 2019 and Aromérica Parfumeur, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Chile, 2016. She also was a participating artist in the Inaugural Honolulu Biennial, 2017. Her work has been supported by the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University, and the US Fulbright Scholar Program, amongst others.
