Alumni Stories: “Where Are They Now?”

Wu pictured at AFH as an Exhibitions Intern.

“AFH was the first time I really had an artist community.”

Wu pictured as an adult.

“‘[The workshop] was about building a design community that is collective rather than hyper-individualistic because I feel like that’s the rising trend of design. Everyone is competing with each other rather than being in community with each other. Our workshop was a response to that.”

“Recognizing that [art], as labor, should be compensated for is important.”

One of Wu’s works from the Painting Studio at AFH.

“I remember distinctly at one point I was drawing on the train and I thought, I think this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I can’t see myself doing anything else.”

“Conceptualizing the Chinese American diasporic experience with the metaphor concentric circles, I curated a selection of experiences important to my understanding of identity.”
