Cambodia - The Memory Workshop

This exhibit at Maison Française and The Italian Academy for Advanced Studies at Columbia University, open until May 4, features seventy works of visual arts (paintings, drawings, photographs) about the Cambodian genocide under the Khmer Rouge, made by the great contemporary artists Vann Nath and Séra (both survivors of the genocide), as well as works by emerging artists who were invited to create artworks evoking the genocide during three "memory workshops" held at Bophana Center between 2008 and 2012.
