In this new exhibition, artist-in-residence Beatrice Glow reckons with the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam from local and global perspectives. Glow has created a series of seven parade float maquettes that envision an alternative commemoration. The small VR-sculpted and 3D-printed sculptures will be complemented by Glow’s interpretations of decorative art collection objects, such as embroidered textiles and gilded baby rattles that reflect ideas of social and cultural power.

Admission is pay-as-you-wish from 5–8 pm on Fridays.
