BEATRICE GLOW is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist. Her practice comprises sculptural installations, trilingual publishing, and participatory and lecture performances. Her research mines the relationship between Asia and the Americas, investigating transpacific economic and cultural circulations, as well as persistent, romanticized notions of the exotic “other.” She earned a BFA in studio art from New York University, and is currently a Visiting Scholar in the University’s Asian/Pacific/American Institute. Recent activities include a residency at LES Studio Program, a program of Artists Alliance Inc., New York, NY; a solo project at Wave Hill, New York, NY; finalist for the Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Award; digital publishing with the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; and lecture performances at Asia Society, New York, NY; and “My Art Guide: Venice Meeting Point, “56th Venice Biennale. Her work has been featured in recent exhibitions at the Bronx Museum of the Arts; Zebrastraat Gallery, Gent, Belgium; Cavin-Morris Gallery, New York, NY; El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY; and Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Arequipa, Peru. In 2014, Glow received the Franklin Furnace Fund to organize the Floating Library, a pop-up public space with free programming aboard the Lilac Museum Steamship, New York, NY. As a Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics’ Council Member she also launched their Asian/Americas workgroup in 2014 at the Encuentro 2014 in Montreal. In 2008–9, she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a research-creation project in Peru on Asian Latin America. She is currently curating an Indigenous Geography Exhibit and Lab at New York University, and is preparing for an upcoming solo exhibit at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Chile in 2016.
