Artist Beatrice Glow Open Studio

Commencing the second cycle of the Artist-in-Residence Programme at Yale-NUS College, artist Beatrice Glow is in Singapore from January-May 2021. Glow is working in service of public history to create a more socially and environmentally just future. She often co-labours with scholars, scientists and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. For this residency, she is pursuing a research-creation project that delves into Chinese, Singaporean, and the greater Southeast Asian visual and olfactory culture in relationship to trade histories that continue to impact our present and environmental futures. This multi-sensorial research of experiencing sites, scents and cultural objects along the spice and incense route will lead to multidisciplinary works that ​activate plant histories to and spur relational thinking that challenges the perceptions that humans are separate from nature. Her studio at Gillman Barracks is part of a collaboration between Yale-NUS College AIR and NTU CCA Singapore residencies. The AIR Programme is made possible with the support of Tan Chin Tuan Foundation through the Tan Chin Tuan Chinese Culture and Civilisation Programme.

One of the largest surveys of ceramics art in local art history since the 90s, this exhibition focuses on contemporary ceramics made by Singapore-based artists. While the practice of ceramics commonly falls under the radar in art institutions and fairs, the exhibition expands one’s understanding of the clay medium beyond the realm of pottery.
