Art Games by Snow Yunxue Fu
Chicago Gamespace is pleased to present a series of art games by New York-based artist Snow Yunxue Fu. Whether running through a placeless city, exploring a treacherous ocean trench, or encountering an imposing cave, a profound sense of the sublime is found in Fu’s interactive works. Audiences gain a palpable and unsettling sense of the size, beauty and danger of the natural and built environments through her bold, colorful worlds. This solo exhibition features three playable games by the artist including a virtual reality experience, and a series of print selections from her interactive works will be on view as well.
Snow Yunxue Fu is an Assistant Arts Professor in the Department of Photography and Imaging at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts. Formerly a Chicagoan, Fu has taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Ox-bow School of Art and Artists Residency. Her work and academic research have been presented internationally.
