This immersive exhibition uses technology alongside exceptional Cambodian artworks to tell the story of these objects and their restoration. Join Jane Alexander, CMA's chief digital information officer, in a behind-the-scenes talk on the close collaboration that brought these experiences to life, and the guiding philosophy around leveraging technology.
