Schneider Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Robyn Day & Lisa Lindvay. Both photographers utilize portraiture as a means to document identity, community/family dynamics, and culture. 
Robyn Day’s series BURY ME in SHOC KING PINK is a visual account of the artists’ immersion into the Berlin queer scene.  Day’s interest in global queer identities, cultures, and communities seeks to capture Berlin’s queer scene through the lens of “political portraiture.” Because privacy is paramount, Day often highlights the city’s vibrant street-art as both matter-of-fact and metaphorical stand-ins.  Day earned her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago (2017), where she received the Graduate Merit Award and the Stuart Abelson Graduate Research Fellowship and has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at Center on Halsted, Chicago; Premio Carlo Bonatto Minella, Prague and Turin; the LA Art Show; FlashPoint, Boston; Art Olympia, Tokyo; the Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC; Arte Laguna Prize, Venice; and the International Biennial of Fine Art and Documentary Photography, Berlin. 
For over ten years Lisa Lindvay has been photographing her family, revealing glimpses into the lives of her father; two brothers and sister as they cope with the deteriorating mental health of Lindvay’s mother.  The portraits in her ongoing series Hold Together tackle in wider context issues of instability, financial adversity, and the growing pains of adolescence through her very personal and private lens.  Lindvay earned her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago (2009) and has been exhibited nationally and internationally including Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago; Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington (DC); Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover (MA); Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro (NC); and Internationally at Turner Contemporary, Margate (ENG); among others. She is the recipient of the 3Arts Artist Award (2011) and Chicago Artadia Award (2012).
