Inspired by the rapid changes and reforms in Myanmar since the installation of a quasi-civilian government in March 2011, Burmese artists of diverse age, background and interest have produced 50 paintings that are now on display at the Fong Sum Wood Library of Lingnan University. These works of art constitute an invaluable window onto a dynamic and complex society, and help trigger new ways of understanding Myanmar, a country that is still largely unknown to the outside world.
Entitled “Myanmar Perspective: 50 Paintings from a Changing Country”, the exhibition was curated by Prof Ian Holliday, a renowned political scientist of The University of Hong Kong with a profound interest in the politics of Burma/Myanmar. He spoke at the opening ceremony on 27 February, and will give a guided tour at 4 pm on 7 March.
The exhibition will last until 27 March during the opening hours of the Fong Sum Wood Library. For the opening hours, please refer to: http://www.ln.edu.hk/events/#ev1.
