Coffee and Chat with Cambodian artist Chath Piersath

Meet Cambodian artist, poet and activist Chath Piersath, who is in Toronto for the East Gallery's exhibition of contemporary art from Cambodia - 'Identities'. Growing up during the traumatic years of the Khmer Rouge regime he fled to the United States as a child and now divides his time between Cambodia and the U.S. Chath began to paint as a way of exorcising his memory of war and violence. He also uses art to work with people who have been traumatized by war, social inequity and injustice.
The artist will talk about his life and art work, what it is like to live between countries, and about Cambodia's contemporary art scene.
