THE ARTISTS AND CREATORS SHOW
Discovery, Encounters, Exchanges
Cambodia is a meeting point for many designers, artists, designers, artisans, fashion designers inspired by its culture and who used the products and commodities of the country.
The artists and creators show, which will begin on March 4, invites you to (re)discover major creators.Sharing and exchange are at the heart of this second edition, with thoughtful dialogues in the luxuriant garden of the « No Problem » colonial villa.
A circuit, imagined by more than twenty Cambodian and international artists, will transport us to different universes where we can appreciate works freely, while interacting totally with the site, since the new creations will use this circuit as its raw material.
No one is enclosed in his own bubble. Atmospheres come together, assemble, and then disappear.
This is an invitation to discovery, exchange, and wonderment.
Special Event for 2012
Following the exhibition on March 2012, Christie’s will conduct an auction to sell a choice of art pieces. The benefits of the sale will go to “Cambodia Living Art,” an association that supports young Cambodian artists.It is the very first time that Christie’s comes to Cambodia for such an event. This represents an honor and great opportunity for Cambodian Designers to evaluate their artworks on the international market.
