Welcome to the Constable Gallery at Large blog where we will inform and converse about the art scene and other cultural events happening in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is towards the end of June 2016 and after an extremely harsh, hot, dry season we have now entered the monsoon. With the rains come a cooler clime and a heightened verdant landscape.
At the same time it feels like the arts community are gathering steam once again with collaborations in the air and various new outlets for show casing Cambodia’s creative talent. Already this past week the Little Red Fox Espresso in Kandal Village have supported Phare stage a live art performance. Dramatic in every sense of the word, the skies might have opened but the rains were in time with the music and drama of the live act.
And next to the banks of the Siem Reap river the 1961 art space is showing ‘The Silent Explosion’, a photographic exhibition by Ali Al-Nasani depicting the “rapidly emerging street art in Kathmandu”. The exhibition runs through July 14th.
