Rosewood Phnom Penh’s Art Gallery played host on September 9 to a multidisciplinary exhibition featuring the works of Cambodian artists Adana Mam Legros and Tytaart. The “Complementarity” exhibition focuses on the importance of humanity and harmonious living in society.
During the exhibition, Adana – a French-Cambodian woman who battled cancer and became an artist – also launched another project: Generation C Cambodia (with “C” referring to convivialisme – the art of living together).
Prominent guests including Minister of Culture and Fine Arts Phoeurng Sackona, French Ambassador to Cambodia Eva Nguyen Binh and director-general of the National Bank of Cambodia Chea Serey attended the event. Two Cambodia-based fashion designers, Eric Raisina and Romyda Keth, also showcased a collection of 10 exquisite dresses among the wonderful abstract paintings and artistic photographs. The exhibition is open to the public until January 10. Photos by Hean Rangsey
