About the Organizers
We are a group of artists and cultural agents working to raise a non-profit platform that highlights the contemporary creation of emerging Cambodian artists. This show also aims to bring together artists from different disciplines in order to promote exchanges of experiences, reflections and diverse approaches to art. The goal of PENH ART is to put Cambodia on the regional art scene.
About the jury and curators
To select the artists exhibited and guarantee the quality and coherence of the art fair, we have the following artists as our jury panel: Sopheap Pich, Vuth Lyno, Chhim Sothy, Erick Gonzalez, and Meta Moeng.
Erick Gonzalez is the exhibition curator, Miguel Jeronimo the invited curator and Dorian Leroy the installation coordinator.
About the guest artists exhibition
Besides the artworks selected by our jury from the Open Call, PENH ART includes a collective exhibition of some of the best and most international Cambodian artists as a side program from the official competition. We see their work as an inspiration for the new creative generation of Cambodia, so we are inviting some members of the jury itself to present an artwork of their choice. Among the artists invited are Anida Yoeu Ali, Chhim Sothy, Chov Theanly, Sao Sreymao, Sopheap Pich, Vutha Thor, Sothea Tang, and the dance group The New Cambodian Artists.
