Sa Sa Bassac is a gallery and resource center co-founded by curators and artists. Mindful of the Cambodian context, we are dedicated to creating, facilitating, producing, and sharing contemporary visual culture and projects from Cambodia, both inside and outside of our space.
Our programming focuses on the creative and educational experience of each project for artists and the audience. In the gallery, we present singular exhibitions of new work by emerging and mid-career local Cambodian artists. Each exhibition, presented in Khmer and English, is supported by public programs and is for all ages. Outside the gallery, we collaborate with others to produce a range of activities such as documentaries, publications, and performances, as well as the Cambodian Visual Art Archive. The first of its kind in the country, our by-donation art library is accessible for public use in our reading room.
