Khmer Arts Taking Over the Big Apple

"The festival celebrates Cambodia’s artistic revival just one generation removed from the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979), a dark period in Cambodia’s history during which nearly 90% of the artists and intellectuals were tragically eliminated in an effort to devastate a flourishing artistic community. Season of Cambodia, then, will serve as an international platform that not only highlights the extraordinary resilience of the Cambodian nation and its artists, and also sets the stage for other post-conflict nations seeking renewal through artistic expression."
