The first opening in Hong Kong in October

Several artists of Pansodan Gallery have been selected to participate to an important and unusual exhibition titled Banned in Burma: Painting Under Censorship. The show embracing more than 50 works, co-curated by Melissa Carlson, Ian Holliday in partnership with Ko Pyay Way (Nawaday Tharlar Gallery) and in consultation with Aung Soe Min (Pansodan Gallery) ‘highlights paintings produced under the military government from 1962 to 2011 and in the aftermath of the March 2011 transition to civilian rule’ (press release). The exhibition ‘affords viewers a sense of the challenges faced by artists who experimented with non-traditional art forms and the unique vocabulary developed by artists to evade censorship,’ adds Melissa Carlson. The show will be soon presented in Hong Kong between November 29 and December 1, 2014 at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre.
