This summer I've been bringing small groups to the Duke House NYU Institute of Fine Arts to view my show "Spice Roots/Routes" paired with aromas and previews of Rhunhattan VR (work in progress).
My current solo exhibit Beatrice Glow: Spice Roots/Routes at the James B. Duke House with NYU Institute of Fine Arts is on view March 22 – June 19, 2017. Please join me, along with some illustrious guest speakers on Thursday May 11th at 6:30 PM for"Empire of Tobacco: the Legacy of Tobacco"!
- Smudge at the entrance of the James B. Duke House
- Introductions by curators Kristen Gaylord and Kathleen Robin Joyce
- Opening remarks by George Stonefish
- "Spice Roots/Routes," a performance/lecture by Beatrice Glow
- "Tobacco, tobacco! Sojourns, Symbols, and Slaves in the Shaping of the Modern World," a talk by Prof. Gunja SenGupta
This exhibition demonstrates how these recurring patterns of exploration and exploitation speak to one another and continue to resonate with contemporary concerns. By installing the Spice Route series in the former home of James B. Duke, we also reflect on how the Institute of Fine Arts—which has made the Duke House its home since 1958—can productively engage with the history of this site.
