by Pete Pin, Amy Lee Sanford and Seoun Som
curated by Vuth Lyno
at SA SA BASSAC, Phnom Penh
July 18 – September 6, 2014
Traversing Expanses explores and invites dialogue about Cambodian diaspora communities in the United States through works by three Cambodian-American artists: Pete Pin, Amy Lee Sanford and Seoun Som. Each artist challenges the possibilities of the photographic medium and its materiality as an art practice. Traversing Expanses looks at different kind of spaces that each artist attempts to create and navigate in (re)connecting to their own histories and (re)imagining their worlds of meaning.
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.
