In service of public history and a more socially and environmentally just future, artist Beatrice Glow often co-labors with scholars, scientists and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. Her ongoing research into the social histories of plants provides vignettes into the entangled realities of dispossession, enslavement, migrations and extractive economies. In this artist talk, she will delve into the creative process behind various experiential technology collaborations and multisensory and multimedia projects that weave together a global narrative of shared cultural heritages and environmental realities.

Beatrice Glow leverages her interdisciplinary art practice to shift dominant narratives. She has been named a LMCC Workspace Artist, Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow, Smack Mellon Studio Program Artist, ZERO1 American Arts Incubator artist and Fulbright Scholar.
