“There were times when our eyes, ears and mouths were shut. They were the moments of perpetual transfixion, the instants of complete silence. We lived through those moments day in, day out. Now we would like to stop for a minute and look back at what happened. This is the time for reflection, so let’s stop for a minute.”

The exhibition will feature exceptional artwork by seven Burmese artists including Tun Win Aung and Wahnu, Htein Lin, Maung Day, Zun Ei Phyu, Aung Myat Htay and Moe Satt. How will Moe curate, whom was a finalist for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award 2015? It should be one of the most remarkable exhibitions in 2016.
