yangon today
Café Zarah , 46 Gulou Dong Dajie Thu 21 Sep 2017 - Sat 25 Nov 2017 Free

This event has now passed.

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.
