Emiko's exposure to curatorial practice and theory came through seminars on the ethnography of creative practices and the politics of curation at the Branly Museum in Paris and by learning from her colleagues at the Reyum Research Institute & Gallery in Phnom Penh, where she was trained to think research and art as one process. In 2007 she improvised an exhibition of scattered family archives from the pre-war(s) 60’s, on the walls of the O’Russei Village Mosque in Cambodia. In 2010 she was invited by the East West Center, at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, as a co-curator for the Cambodian section of a Cham contemporary culture exhibition.
