Join Nachiket Chanchani,  Curator of Angkor Complex and Associate Professor of the History of Art, and Sonya Rhie Mace, George P. Bickford Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, on an engaging tour of the exhibition that will reflect on innovations and milestones in the history of the Mekong Basin. Chanchani and Mace will discuss material and visual culture, as well as the prospects and perils of the repatriation of historical artifacts to Cambodia.  

As crises of public health, economic instability, authoritarian regimes, racial injustice, and climate change spread around the globe, millions are experiencing distress, conflict, uncertainty, and vulnerability. This troubling combination of experiences is nothing new for Cambodians. Between 1975-1979, when the Khmer Rouge ruled Cambodia, about a quarter of the country’s population died of infectious diseases, weapon wounds, and malnutrition. 

The exhibition Angkor Complex: Cultural Heritage and Post-Genocide Memory in Cambodia brings together more than 80 works of art spanning a millennium to present how the visual culture of Cambodia and its diaspora has changed in the face of upheavals. Angkor Complex also allows viewers to encounter the still-fresh scars of a genocide and critically appreciate the strategies evolved to nurture resilience in trying times.

Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the U-M Office of the Provost, U-M Office of the President, National Endowment for the Arts, Michigan Arts and Culture Council, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, Eleanor Noyes Crumpacker Endowment Fund, U-M Ross School of Business, U-M Department of History of Art, Mark and Julie Phillips, U-M Center for Southeast Asian Studies, US Department of Education Title VI grant, and an anonymous donor. Additional generous support is provided by the U-M Department of Asian Languages and Cultures.
