Nina Kuo

New York, NY

In the 1990s Kuo showed work at the New Museum and Artists’ Space. Her work was first seen at the Center in Assembled Photographs, curated by Kathleen Kenyon in 1982. She went on to be included in additional shows, including a solo in 1999, and was given an Artist-in-Residence at the Center that same year. During her stay with us her talent, creativity, eccentricity, and humor moved us to tears!  Kuo continues to participate in CPW programs and served as an A-I-R review panelist in 2001.
