Schneider was also a founding member of Orchard gallery, a cooperatively organized exhibition and event space in New York’s Lower East Side. (2005 to 2008). In 2010, co-founded Cage to facilitate other kinds of social interactions. The object/subject relationship in her work is amplified towards the creation of a broader (social) architecture/system, producing sometimes, very abstract signs that are not necessarily visible anymore. Her works are in museum collections such as Museum of Modern Art, Sao Paulo; Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro; Museum of Art in Lodz, Poland; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires among others. She exhibited in numerous museums internationally such as Museum of Modern Art, NY; Sculpture Center, NY; Centre D’art Contemporain, Bordeuax; The Barbican, London; Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka among others.
