Phnom Penh is a living canvas, a thriving, evolving space that celebrates the city’s cultural glory. Rosewood Phnom Penh collaborates with the country’s most influential and up-and-coming artists to showcase some of Cambodia’s most exciting contemporary artworks. A total space of 112 square meters, the Phnom Penh art gallery is located on level 35.
Art with a Purpose
Born and bred in Cambodia, Adana finds inspiration from many sources -- her parents’ activism, neuroscience, philosophy, sociology and her personal battle with cancer. Passionate about humanitarian work from a young age, this visionary believes art and activism go hand in hand and it seems gallery curators agree: Adana’s geometric acrylic paintings have been exhibited all over the world, including New York, Paris, Australia, Brussels and Bangkok.
Tytaart, a respected Phnom Penh-based portrait artist, has joined forces with Adana to bring Complementarity to life. The artist specializes in fine art photography, capturing incredibly intimate and evocative portraits of women in photographic series. From friends to total strangers, Tytaart depicts the visceral emotions and raw beauty of her subjects, while playing with natural light and shadows to create unexpected compositions.
A New Generation of Cambodians
During the exhibition, Adana Mam Legros will officially launch another project: Generation C Cambodia. With the “C” standing for convivialism (the art of living together), the socially driven artistic movement aims to encourage new ways of thinking, placing a greater emphasis on collaboration, compassion and social responsibility. To add another layer of collaboration and excitement, the artists have invited two Cambodia-based fashion designers, Eric Raisina and Romyda Keth, to showcase a collection of 10 exquisite dresses.
The exhibition will run from September 9, 2020 to January 10, 2021. The Art Gallery is open 24 hours daily and admission is free.
