I had intended to visit Meta House for long time ago, but I did not have a chance until last Sunday. The Phnom Penh Post gave a 16-page supplementary story exclusively on the exhibition, yet I was the only visitor when I stepped my foot there at about 5:00 PM. Not a soul. I stayed there for about 20 minutes but there was no sight of visitor. It was a surprise to me, especially after seeing crowd teeming with people of all age at Naga World coming to see the ITC Expo 2009. Sadly, people’s interest in arts apparently is still relatively low.
A two man exhibition from 31 March to 22 April at Meta House.
