Anika Schneider ’19, MFA, uses a multimedia approach to manipulate and reimagine Chinese imagery in a solo exhibition titled Chinese-ish at Soo Visual Arts Center.

Schneider translates the visual influences she grew up with into her own story as a way to deepen her connection to the culture of her ancestors. The Chinese aspects of this work are at once deeply familiar and distant to her. Through the act of recreating and restructuring Chinese symbols, she is creating her own narrative of what it means to be Chinese, to have a Chinese family, and yet struggle with cultural gaps.
