CCVA is an online platform that brings visibility to contemporary Cambodian visual artists. We are a small team of artists, arts managers, and creatives based in Cambodia that recognized a need in our community to build bridges between different generations of artists and increase their exposure to audiences near and far.
We created this platform to enable a more connected arts community, where artists can benefit and grow through knowledge of each others’ work and existence. We believe this is a step toward meaningful connections, stronger networks, and opportunities that will support the long-term development of contemporary Cambodian visual art. In doing so, we are building meaningful connections, stronger networks, and opportunities that will support the long-term development of contemporary Cambodian visual art.
Though we have a thriving community of artists, this network hasn’t been easy to learn about. This website, available in both Khmer and English, is here to be a knowledge hub and 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.
