Pansodan Scene will welcome from the middle of October a new regular program. `Let`s Speak Art` is a series of friendly gatherings around the topic of art theory and techniques. The idea, conceived by Borbála Kálmán, a Hungarian art historian and curator living in Yangon since early 2014, is to provide regular sessions where artists, art lovers, actors of the art scene can share ideas around a specific topic for each session. The `art history club` would like to focus on issues around the contemporary art scene but also provide some background information on earlier art tendencies. Hence, the talks would help discover the different cultural contexts which have brought to life such movements as Surrealism, Cubism or given birth to the first conscious Abstract art works. For each occasion, an interesting visual material will be projected to illustrate the topics. The `Let`s Speak Art` sessions will be organized in association with Myannmar Art Resource Centre and Archive (MARCA), a young project dedicated to collect and digitize documents and books from the Asian art scene with a particular focus on Myanmar. For each `Let`s Speak Art!` session, some books relating to the current topic will be chosen and brought along for the audience to discover them at Pansodan Scene. MARCA has recently joined Asia Art Archive`s Open Edit: Mobile Library Project: starting in November in Myanmar, it will enable several hundred of books on art to travel in the entire country. Please join the first session of `Let`s Speak Art` on Wednesday October 22, 2014 at Pansodan Scene from 5.30 p.m. The event is free and don`t forget to bring some paper to take notes!
