Launch of Cambodian Contemporary Visual Artists online platform
Sa Sa Art Projects has launched Cambodian Contemporary Visual Artists (CCVA), an online platform that brings visibility to contemporary Cambodian visual artists.
The project, made up of a small team of artists, arts managers, and creatives based in Cambodia, recognises a need to build bridges between different generations of artists and increase their exposure to audiences near and far.
They created a platform to enable a more connected arts community, where artists can benefit and grow through knowledge of each other’s work. Their aim is that by creating this platform they can work towards meaningful connections, stronger networks, and opportunities that will support the long-term development of contemporary Cambodian visual art.
The website, available in both Khmer and English, is designed to be a knowledge hub and to bridge the gaps. It allows researchers, curators, art collectors, and anyone interested in learning more about contemporary Cambodian art an entry point into the work of artists active in today’s visual arts community.
