A fascinating initiative will bring at the beginning of December 30 unique works of art by 12 Myanmar contemporary artists to Miami, USA.
The pieces, carefully curated by Mr Ahal Besorai from Fore Front Capital with the help of Aung Soe Min, owner of Pansodan Gallery for most of the works, will be exhibited for three days during Art Basel, one of the most important international art fairs held annually at Miami Beach. Collectors at Art Basel will have hence access to the works of contemporary Myanmar artists closed for so long within their borders. The selection will be also featured exclusively at a special invitation-only show at 1545 Collins Avenue, Miami on Thursday, Dec. 4, co-sponsored by Pall Mall, Forefront Myanmar and Quintessentially Lifestyle, a global concierge company.
“I feel this is a unique opportunity for Myanmar art and the chosen Myanmar artists to be able to exhibit their works on the international stage,” says Mr Besorai, having initiated the project. “My aim is to create a global platform through which Myanmar art and artists can get as wider as possible exposure to the leading art markets”.
“As someone who has been involved in the local Myanmar art scene (both as an artist and as a gallery owner) for over 20 years, it is refreshing to see that finally Myanmar art is managing to make a serious international impact,” adds Aung Soe Min, “it gives me great pleasure as one who has accompanied most of these artists from the early stages and one who witnessed them grow and develop to now be able to assist with and be a part of this exciting global push,” he continues.
The exhibited artists from Pansodan Gallery will be Soe Naing, Ei Kaza Cho, Zaw Nyunt Pe, Zwe Yan Naing, Myint San Myint, Aung Htoo, Fela.
