Leeza Ahmady and Erin Gleeson, co-curators of the Season of Cambodia Visual Art program, IN RESIDENCE, will discuss the curatorial process that brought together 10 Cambodian contemporary artists, one curator, 14 New York institutions, and numerous international scholars, critics, and curators for two months of residencies and public programs. IN RESIDENCE opens up a significantly visible dialogue around contemporary art practice in Cambodia to New York City audiences.
This program is a co-collaboration between ICI and AhmadyArts, and presented as part of IN RESIDENCE, the Visual Art Program of Season of Cambodia, a Living Arts Festival. Season of Cambodia is a special initiative of Cambodian Living Arts in partnership with Cambodia’s leading arts organizations and New York’s most vibrant cultural and academic institutions. The Festival features more than 125 Cambodian performing and visual artists at New York City’s stages, screens, galleries, and public spaces, creating a broad and dynamic platform for Cambodia’s cultural treasures to be shared with an international audience.
