Ruptures and Revival: Cambodian Photography in the Last Decade (Report)

I have been invited to guest curate a show at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, titled Ruptures and Revival: Cambodian Photography in the Last Decade. Featuring seven bodies of work made in the last decade, this is the first attempt to showcase three “generations” of Cambodian photographers within the same setting. The show runs from 8 March to 1 April 2012.

Take a video tour (3:17) of the show here:

This is an article titled Mekong Spring: Cambodian Photography in the Last Decade that I have written recently for Asia Art Archive (HK) that contextualizes the history and historiography of photographies in Cambodia.
