On Tuesday, September 27, A/P/A Institute at NYU Artist-in-Residence Beatrice Glow began 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.
