Cambodia: Looking Back on the Future
|When||4 May 2017 - 14 Jun 2017|
2nd Floor, Greenwich Library, 101 West Putnam Avenue
Greenwich, CT 06830
Cambodia: Looking Back on the Future takes a deeper look at contemporary art in Cambodia, exploring notions of time, identity and history. Central to all the works selected for the exhibition is the human figure. The figure, as in traditional art forms, is an important device for many artists to assert personal narratives, implying significance and meaning in the context of larger historical events.
This exhibition is a bold undertaking that represents the largest known presentation of artwork by Cambodian visual artists in the U.S to date. It includes work by eleven contemporary Cambodian artists that are both established and emerging. This show brings together a cross section of many different practices including painting, photography, sculpture, installation and performance. During the course of the exhibition, the gallery will present several public programs including film screenings, talks and performances that will further expand on topics that are important for contemporary art in Cambodia today. All programs are free and open to the public.
Exhibiting artists include: Anida Yoeu ALI, Chath PIERSATH, CHOV Theanly, HENG Ravuth, KONG Vollak, LEANG Seckon, LIM Muy Theam, Marine KY, NEAK Sophal, OEUR Sokuntevy and YIM Maline.
