Cambodia: Looking Back on the Future is the work of eleven contemporary Cambodian artists, established and emerging, focusing on the human figure and represents the largest known gathering of artwork by Cambodian visual artists in the United States. The exhibition takes a deeper look at contemporary art in Cambodia, the subtleties and complexities that characterize a fluid present moving between past and future. With a tendency towards personal narratives, the figure has emerged, forming a thread to tie together the complexities of personal histories, social issues, identity, displacement and memory. Curators: Debra Fram and Barbara Richards of the Flinn Gallery and Dana Langlois of JavaArts, Phnom Penh.

Vollak Kong received an ACC fellowship in 2012 to observe contemporary art activities and for creative residencies in the U.S.
