Welcome Event for Beatrice Glow

Tuesday, September 27, 6-9PM

6PM Planting at the NYU Native Woodlands Garden, Schwartz Plaza (corner of Washington Square South and Washington Square East)
6:30PM Lecture-Performance at NYU Steinhardt Pless Hall, 82 Washington Square East, First Floor Lounge

A/P/A Institute at NYU Artist-in-Residence Beatrice Glow begins her residency with the act of planting a native tree, and the presentation of a new lecture-performance. Glow’s work uncovers invisible, suppressed stories that lie in the geopolitical shadows of colonialism and migration. During her residency, the interdisciplinary artist will research the social history of plants via spice routes and botanical expeditions focusing on the historical and contemporary relationship between the islands of Rhun (in present-day Indonesia) and Manaháhtaan to create Rhunhattan, a multiplatform project which will include psychogeographic and immersive tech experiences. Leeza Ahmady (Asia Contemporary Art Week), Thomas Looser (NYU Department of East Asian Studies), Jennifer McGregor(Wave Hill), Jack Tchen (A/P/A Institute at NYU), and Associate Dean Lindsay Wright(NYU Steinhardt) will offer comments, and composer, performer, and improvisor Pauchi Sasaki will present a musical composition.
