Introductory comments by Iftikhar Dadi for the Contemporary Art in Cambodia: A Historical Inquiry symposium.

Context

Contemporary Art in Cambodia: A Historical Inquiry is a one-day academic symposium with renowned scholars, curators, and artists. Some have argued that Cambodia has emerged from a post-conflict society into an era of social, economic, and political transformation. This symposium will focus on a dimension of its cultural transformation as it has been manifested in a burgeoning contemporary arts scene within the last decade. Through inquiries into broader artistic, cultural, and aesthetic practices, various scholars and arts practitioners will speak to historical trajectories of contemporary art practice in Cambodia and its positioning in narratives of art history. By building a critical dialogue that will interrogate the way the field is being shaped, the symposium aims to strengthen the foundation for more thorough investigations into Cambodia’s recent art historical developments.
