Snow Yunxue Fu is a US-based Chinese-born artist, curator, and Assistant Arts Professor in the Department of Photography and Imaging at NYU, Tisch School of the Arts. Using topographical computer-rendered images and installations, her practice merges historical painterly, philosophical, and post-photographic explorations into the aesthetic and definitive nature of the sublime. With a background in painting, Fu remains the youngest painter collected by the National Art Museum of China, and sees her former transition into new media as a natural extension of her conceptual and current research.

Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, including Pioneer Works, Venice Architecture Biennial, Arebyte Gallery in London, Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennial, Thoma Art House, Current Museum of Art, NADA Art Fair, TRANSFER Download, Pingyao International Photography Festival, Barcelona Loop Festival, The Wrong Biennial, Sediton, Expo Chicago, Hong Kong Art Center, Print Screen Festival in Israel, Chicago Filmmakers, MOMA PopRally Screening, and the Gene Siskel Film Center.

Fu formerly taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for five years, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Ox-bow School of Art and Artists Residency, and has presented her work and research at institutions, symposiums, and international conferences including SIGGRAPH Anaheim, Celebrating Women in New Media Symposium at SAIC, and jurying the Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival of Chicago. She also actively engages in curatorial projects and screenings, and regularly organizes Experimental New Media screenings for her students and peers.
