Artist Statement

Ideal Map of New York City is a reimagining of New York as a place that probably isn't perfect for everyone, but seems to me like a wonderful place to live.

Andrew Kuo is a participant in Art on the Grid, a citywide, open-air exhibition presented by Public Art Fund. Conceived in the spring of 2020, the exhibition features 50 artists’ reflections on the converging crises of the coronavirus pandemic and systemic racism in our country.
