Sa Sa Art Projects is Phnom Penh’s only artist-run space dedicated to experimental art practices. Founded in 2010 by art collective Stiev Selapak and located inside a low-income urban neighborhood called the White Building, Sa Sa Art Projects explores and challenges the possibilities of art by engaging Cambodian and visiting artists, creative individuals, students, and the White Building’s residents in realizing art projects and events that are accessible and enjoyable by everyday Cambodians. Sa Sa Art Projects does these by focusing on three main areas: experimental art residency program with Cambodian and visiting artists, art and media workshops with artists and young residents of the White Building and Phnom Penh city, and special collaborative projects.

Lyno Vuth is currently a Fulbright Fellow undertaking an MA in Art History at Binghamton University. He is also an artist, curator, and artistic director of Sa Sa Art Projects. Coming from international development background, his art practice and research interest center on socially engaged, participatory, and experimental arts.
