    Snow Yunxue Fu's Curatorial Work


    1) 0,0,0
    Sullivan Gallery
    Final showcase of the student works from the course Game Space and Virtual Environment, TA-ed by Minshuo Tang. Students in this course are challenged not only to learn the basic technical skills of game design, using 3D animation/game software such as Maya, Unity, Blender, and Sculptris. Rather, they are asked to think critically about art making using these tools by exploring ideas of interactivity, storytelling, simulation, and social events.

    2) Air Conditioned Art Practice
    School of Art and Artists' Residency
    This unlikely alliance of restless college students is sinking fast into the moody and unstable world of Autodesk Maya. She's a manic-pixie-dream-software; hard to get, but worth the challenge. The art practice is air-conditioned, but darkness surrounds them as they struggle to function in the dense forests of Michigan. In the show Air Conditioned Art Practice, we see a glimpse of the life they might lead. Together or apart, in prints or in video, love and creation with a computer in the woods: it's complicated. Air Conditioned Art Practice is the final show of the Ox-bow, School of Art and Artists' Residency's 3D Animation, Virtual Environment class, taught by Snow Yunxue Fu and TA-ed by Nick Flaherty in Summer 2017. Exhibiting artists: John Kasarda, Alexander Exum, Ashley Gillanders, Nicholas Cordova, and Max Crider, David Carrillo, Elizabeth Loftus, Angie Gonzalez, Sara Roth, and Nathaniel Gillette.

    3) Simulythos
    SAIC MacLean 1307 Screening Space
    Simulythos is a new media screening that focuses on experimental 3D animation techniques utilizing simulation software. Appropriating techniques usually used for special effects, advertisment, and mainstream cinema, our artists contextualize these processes to produce experimental media art. These artworks explore new mythos, narratives and themes explored through virtual worlds, and various forms of digital culture. Thus, Simulythos encompasses the uncanny while simulating dynamic environments. The screening features student work from Spring 2017’s Atmospheric Animation class taught by Snow Yunxue Fu and TA-ed by Benji Sayed, in the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation department at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Featuring works by: Cheryl Acuña, Daniel Brookman, Max Crider, Nick Flaherty, Jiantao Hu, Dohee Kim, Grant Kraushar, Jooyoung Lee, and Zhihui Long.
