Yale-NUS Artist-in-Residence Public Lecture: Aromatic Realities
Artist Beatrice Glow will share her creative processes involving research within collections and site-specific histories, as well as co-labouring with community stakeholders, historians, and creative technologies.

In her current artistic research, she is tracing the impact of trade goods such as Chinese silk, gunpowder and porcelain, Bandanese nutmeg and Native American tobacco, that altogether weave a global narrative of shared cultural heritages and environmental realities.

Beatrice Glow will have a conversation with Kan Shuyi, Curator of Chinese Art at the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), Singapore; as well as Chua Beng Huat, Professor of Social Sciences (Urban Studies) at Yale-NUS College.

Beatrice Glow is an artist-researcher who leverages interactive multimedia installations and multisensory experiences to shift dominant narratives and highlight human interconnectivity. Ms Glow often co-labours with historians and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. Her ongoing projects on the social histories of plants provide vignettes into the entangled historical realities of dispossession, enslavement, diasporas, trade and extractive economies.

Kan Shuyi is the Curator of Chinese art at the ACM. She has curated and co-curated several exhibitions, including The Kangxi Emperor (2009), Terracotta Warriors (2011), and Secrets of the Fallen Pagoda (2014).

Chua Beng Huat received his PhD from York University, Canada. He has previously served as Provost Chair Professor, Faculty of Arts and Social Science; Research Leader, Asia Research Institute; and Head of the Department of Sociology at NUS.

The Artist-in-Residence programme is supported by the Tan Chin Tuan Chinese Culture & Civilisation Programme.
