Art

Art is to be shared and experienced by others. Through art, we can learn about our differences and similarities.
In Myanmar, art has been at the forefront of political transition: Creative expression has made it possible to describe the political, social, and emotional landscape of our citizens.

Myanmar’s transformation from military rule to a limited form of constitutional democracy between 2008-2020 was marred by the complex, fragile politics of transition and cultural ambivalence about pursuing past wrongs.
Since February 2021, the Myanmar population has been confronted with a difficult choice: give in to the military past, or create a different national identity that acknowledges the  inequalities and injustices that have taken place and start a governing system that recognises Myanmar’s true ethnic and religious diversity.
In our second exhibition “Holding Hope,” five artists reflect on, and struggle with, the idea of hope in the ongoing conflict. What is its role in the face of adversity and odds, at times overwhelming? Why or what are we holding on to?

If unity/ then justice?

In the If unity/ then justice? exhibition, six artists set out to look back and find answers. Together, they reimagine this future, show resistance and raise awareness of in/justice as it is happening now. As you are looking at their work, ask yourself:
How has your identity changed this year?
Have you too begun to create a different future?
Do you think justice can thrive in a more diverse Myanmar?
