Orwell is Departing: Yangon Today

Café Zarah , 46 Gulou Dong Dajie Thu 21 Sep - Sat 25 Nov Free
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Myanmar is the old George, who was stationed there as an Imperial Police before becoming a writer. Later, the post-colonial era saw a military government keeping an iron grip on the nation - quite like old George had made-believe. Exploring Yangon today, however, one finds a palpable feeling of optimism and an eagerness to reinstate ties to the rest of the world. The future has a leap to take, but the leap has begun - something that the artist has attempted to capture in these images. A nation in motion. This exhibition is made possible in part by the generous support of A True Film (Beijing), Guiyao Movie (Shanghai) and Caspary beer; and co-presented by Mr. HE Qin of A True Film. Runs until November 25.
