Introduction From Myself
My Favourite Dwelling In Cambodia
Riding past a rice terrace, I saw an elderly lady chewing her beetle nut as she looked out to the distant fields.
Cambodia’s once-vibrant cultural life was all but destroyed by decades of conflict and brutality under the Khmer Rouge regime. But since the 1990s, the capital Phnom Penh has slowly rebuilt its artistic spirit, drawing from a new sense of optimism brought on by Cambodia’s rapidly changing society. The contemporary art scene in Phnom Penh is now defiantly pulling away from the ever-popular traditional mainstream and expressing its raw creativity.
Burmese art, largely unaffected by global trends, is truly representative of the country’s landscape and people. Under the military junta, artists carried on quietly, producing bold works of richness and color, but generally avoiding the political. Now, under a new political system, the contemporary art scene is starting to stretch its wings. Here are ten Rangoon galleries where the city’s creativity is flourishing.
The Vietnamese art scene is steadily growing into a vibrant and diverse network, with its main centres in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Vietnamese artists are also increasingly exhibiting abroad in major international events and institutions, recognised for their poignant artistic practices and unique approach to history. Here is a selection of some of the best Vietnamese artists to watch.
Nepalese art is most renowned for its quaint, religious aesthetic that reflects the country’s rich cultural heritage and fuses Buddhist ideology with Hindu representation. While this still holds true, contemporary art in Nepal & India has recently been veering towards socio-political issues, and developing in terms of style and medium. We discover ten of Nepal’s most interesting contemporary art galleries.
The fourth most populated country in the world, spanning more than 17 thousand islands, Indonesia is a cultural phenomenon like no other. The isles and ocean that make up this country contain eight UNESCO World Heritage sites as well as far more cultural riches, making it the perfect destination for cultural travellers. Discover ten must-see destinations in this travel guide to the alluring Indonesian archipelago.
