Exhibition in Paris : Phare, The Brightness of the Arts

In Paris in May? From the 4th to the 26th of May, don’t miss the exhibition Phare, The Brightness of the Arts, showcasing the artworks of some graduate artists from Phare Ponleu Selpak’s Visual Arts School…

All of them tell us about their own stories and express their indignation, joyful moments and sorrows through their paintings, drawings and sculptures. Their artworks are talking about their past and sometimes, symbolically, the history of Cambodia. They also have an artistic vision on the evolution of their country and the way it changes. In that way, they are the new wave of Cambodian contemporary art.

They have in common the brightness of the arts, raised in them since they studied on Phare Ponleu Selpak campus in Battambang, Cambodia.
