New York, NY | Beatrice Glow: When Our Rivers Meet Tour with the Artist & Curator at the New-York Historical Society

July 23 | 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Beatrice Glow (b. 1986), Tecumseh Caesar (b. 1990), Revolutions to Love Our More-Than-Human Relatives, 2023

Meet ArtTable at the New-York Historical Society for a tour of Beatrice Glow: When Our Rivers Meet, co-led by the artist and Rebecca Klassen, New-York Historical’s Curator of Material Culture. This Artist Talk is generously supported by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

About the exhibition: Drawing on research into New-York Historical’s vast Museum and Library collections, artist-in-residence Beatrice Glow reckons with the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam from local and global perspectives. Working in conversation with a group of culture bearers, artists, and scholars whose heritages were impacted by the Dutch colonial enterprise, Glow is creating a series of seven parade float maquettes that envision an alternative commemoration. The small VR-sculpted and 3D-printed sculptures will be complemented by Glow’s interpretations of decorative arts collection objects, such as embroidered textiles and gilded baby rattles that reflect ideas of social and cultural power.

Project participants: Raul Balai, Tecumseh Ceaser, Deborah Jack, Nancy Jouwe, Chief Vincent Mann, Michaeline Picaro Mann, Wim Manuhutu, Brent Stonefish, Teresa Vega

Your reservation includes admission to the New-York Historical Society prior to the tour. The Museum is open from 11:00-5:00 on Tuesdays.

About the Artist

Beatrice Glow is a New York and Bay Area-based multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes examinations of archives and collaboration with culture bearers and researchers in the creation of sculptural installations, textiles, emerging media, and olfactory experiences to envision a more just and thriving world guided by history. An American of Taiwanese heritage, she works in the service of public history with the goal of awakening care and empathy about the impacts of colonialism and the necessity of bridging diasporic and indigenous solidarities. She interrogates historical forms of visual and material culture as a means to reimagine a more socially and environmentally thriving world. Recent solo exhibitions have taken place at New-York Historical Society and Baltimore Museum of Art, amongst others. Her work has been supported by Creative Capital, the National Endowment for the Arts, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Yale-NUS College, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University, the Fulbright Program, and many more.
