Welcome to Myanm/art – gallery, reading room, and exhibition space located in Yangon, Myanmar. We represent artists from all over Myanmar, both young and emerging, and work to raise awareness of their ongoing creative projects, both locally and internationally.
Our experience in Myanmar over the past six years tells us one thing – there is a hell of a lot of talent, underexposed and undervalued – here in Myanmar. With all the rapid change, artists are working hard to contribute to a country in transition. We want to help these artists build their reputations, gain exposure abroad, and have access to an updated library of archival and contemporary resources. So we combined a reading room with hundreds of books and resources, adjoined to an exhibition space free to use for artists. We also work with a selection of artists we believe to be paving the way for future generations of artists, not only in country, but all over Asia and the world.
Myanm/art was originally founded as a platform to aid and contribute to the growing archive of contemporary arts in Myanmar and therefore, the larger map of Southeast Asia. It existed as an exercise of scholarship and archive, of review and editorial. One of the results of the work of Myanmart was MARCA – Myanmar Art Resource Center and Archive, an online and physical resource serving the artistic and creative community in Yangon, with pop-ups in Mandalay and Taungyi. MARCA was part of the Mobile Library program orginially founded by Asia Art Archive, and was the 3rd country host ever to over 400 books on contemporary Asian art.
