Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for week commencing 4 October, 2022

Apologies for the absence of Kumnooh for a few weeks due to technical issues (i.e. laptop meltdown). 

On Wednesday 5 at The Gallerist is the opening of an exhibition by Algerian artist Andre Nadal.  “His artistic expression is essentially centered on the black and white contrast and intertwining. André’s pictorial universe consists of cubes, calligraphy, compactions of feathers, floating objects. The zen and dynamic aesthetics of André Nadal pulls us in a pondering that both calms and stimulates the spirit.” 
From 6 pm.
