Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for week commencing 26 February, 2019

Greetings,
Wednesday 27 at Meta HouseTokyo Story, an exhibition by young German photographer Niclas Vincent Morgenthal.   “In September 2018 he traveled Japan with his analog camera as a street photographer.  During his four months stay in Tokyo, he has been capturing the beauty of the city, as well as its downsides such as homelessness and the prostitution industry.”  6 pm start.
Thursday 28 at Sa Sa Art Projects, a lecture by Caroline Ha Thuc entitled Hong Kong Contemporary Art: Resistance.  “Since the turn of the century, Hong Kong has been experiencing a veritable cultural renaissance. Over the last few years, the city has become an art market hotspot, welcoming more and more art galleries and hosting Art Basel Hong Kong since 2012.  Face of this avalanche of investment and transactions, what position are Hong Kong artists taking? Living in the temple of liberalism and surrounded by materialism, many develop a kind of resistance toward the system and capitalistic values. This resistance does not take the form of either denial or open conflict, it is rather a quest for new values and the posing of questions on the role of the artist in society.”  In English with Khmer interpretation.
