Beatrice Glow

Smack Mellon Artist Studio Program

92 Plymouth Street

Beatrice Glow is an interdisciplinary artist and multi-sensory storyteller leveraging sculptural installations, experiential technology collaborations, olfactory art and participatory performance to shift dominant narratives. She has focused on painting for her recent work. In the Smoke Series, Glow takes on the history and presentation of smoke from its presence in worship, cremation, seduction, illusion, and addiction. The project narrates a parallel of historical trauma and surfaces with the history of tobacco from sacredness into the commercial and transactional history of the U.S., including implications regarding labor and spirituality.

Glow’s work is an incubator for applied research of public engagement with non-linear historical narratives. Recently, through the American Arts Incubator and with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, her focus has been on amplifying Indigenous voices through public art and virtual and augmented reality works in allyship with Indigenous environmental stewardship. Glow has had recent solo exhibitions at Duke House, Institute of Fine Arts, NYU; Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Santiago, Chile; Cuchifritos Gallery, New York; and Wave Hill, Bronx, NY. She is currently a 2018-19 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow and 2018-19 Smack Mellon Studio Program Artist.
