The development of Cambodian contemporary art by Vuth Lyno with Larry Strange
Cambodia’s artists and arts institutions were decimated by the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime of the late 1970s. But the past 20 years have seen
remarkable socioeconomic development and the emergence of a vibrant contemporary art scene. A younger generation of artists are now represented in major international arts events like the Asia-Pacific Triennial (APT), the Sydney Biennale, the Venice Biennale, Documenta, and Art Basel, along with shows and collections in major international art centres. Vuth Lyno’s lecture will provide an overview of these developments, highlighting some specific artists and their works, and some of the local initiatives that have fostered them.
Vuth Lyno is a Cambodian artist and Artistic Director of Sa Sa Art Projects, Phnom Penh. His talk will be introduced by Larry Strange, a
collector of Cambodian contemporary art and a socio-economic development policy analyst, based in Phnom Penh since 2003.
