Sa Sa Art Projects

Sa Sa Art Projects is an artist-run initiative dedicated to experimental and critical contemporary art practices. It was founded in 2010 by the arts collective Stiev Selapak and operated from a historic and vibrant apartment complex known as the White Building in Phnom Penh until 2017, when the building was demolished for new development.

A group of visitors stand in the exhibition space and look at a man standing in the middle. He is wearing a long red vest and black laced high-heeled sandals and is stretching his arms upwards. In the foreground are two round sculptures on two pedestals. Some of the spectators take photos or videos with their cell phones.

At its new location, Sa Sa Art Projects has shifted toward a stronger engagement with Cambodian young artists and art graduates while continuing to build a deeper dialogue with artists within Asia through its creative education programs, exhibitions, its signature Pisaot artist residency, and other collaborative projects.

With its activities, Sa Sa Art Projects addresses Cambodia’s lack of infrastructure for contemporary art education and engagement. By not being bound to a rigid organizational structure, Sa Sa Art Projects is able to evolve organically and adapt to the changing context and needs of the communities it works with.
