About Ricardo Casal:

After exhibiting in France, Spain, China and America, Ricardo Casal, a nomadic artist, opened his workshop in Phnom Penh in 2012. Since then, he has continued his creation while conducting artistic projects with local artists and partners.
In 2012, he realized a project entitled “90 Khmer Figures” in homage to King Norodom Sihanouk, in collaboration with a team of young artists of the Royal University of Fine Arts and with the support of the KHMERNEXT Foundation.

About Crossed views on Cambodia:

The time has now come for Ricardo Casal to present the work he has been creating during his stay in Cambodia. On this occasion, and to highlight the vitality of contemporary Cambodian creation, he has given seven young Cambodian artists the opportunity to join his project “Crossed views on Cambodia”. The Bophana Center, as a Cambodian and international cultural center, is the ideal place for Ricardo Casal and these young artists to present to the public their crossed views on Cambodia in this shared exhibition.

The young featuring artists are: Im Pesey, Sou Kimsan, Thun Dina, Nhem Sopheap, Seng Visal, Tep Chanty and Tola Morm, all of whom have recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh.

The exhibition is supported by the foundation KHMERNEXT.

Cine Soiree: A Special Seasonal Screening at Bophana Center!

  • 6:30 pm
  • Bophana Center
  • Other
  • Archives


    The Bophana Center’s archives are both our pillar and our purpose. Our core mission is to give new life to any Cambodian-related film or audiovisual heritage by collecting and preserving movies, photographs and any sound records from Cambodia or from abroad.

    Archives
  • Production


    Production is the second pillar of the Bophana Center. Because production and audiovisual archives are closely associated in one single location, the center has become a unique place that combines culture and development, heritage and modern audiovisual creation, filmmaking and multimedia.

    Our productions

Store

All our products (books, CDs, DVDs, etc.) and those of our partners are on sale at the Bophana Center store.

Services

Since the launch of the Bophana Center, we have developed a wide range of services targeting various audiences, including individuals, civil society organizations, enterprises, and institutions.

What a great project! What a challenge! The Bophana Center questions memories, discloses and discovers them. And suddenly the whole collection helps illuminate the present. While spending some time there, I could feel that a dream was taking shape. And the sights and sounds were becoming weapons of massive construction. Thank you, Rithy, and congratulations to all.
