Kate O’Hara has been the curator at Romeet Contemporary Art Space in Phnom Penh, Cambodia since its opening in 2011. During her 5 years in the country Kate has worked with a range of arts organisations as a curator and researcher including, Khmer Arts, Heinrich Bolle Foundation, Javaarts and the Our City Festival. Prior to her move to Cambodia, she has worked in public programs and curatorship, for such organizations as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image and Next Wave Arts Festival, as well as independently on projects with Australian artists. Her experience is tied together by her interest in the arts, and its potential as a tool for communication and critical exchange in society. Kate also works as part of collaborative lab, artXprojects (with Natalie Pace), which focuses on the creation of relational and participatory art.
