KUDO Window

Coup d’eoil (pronounced koo - doe): a glance that takes in a comprehensive view…

KUDO Window is an intimate public facing window space where projects can be realised, complete or unresolved; frustrations and failures can be aired out, ideas can be experimented with and continue to evolve. We aim to provide an alternative model for public art that attracts visual attention and critical discourse through creative expression.
