A major new art exhibition called “Seven Decades” will feature both old and new work by 18 artists reflecting on their memories of some of the most important periods of the 70 years since independence.
The show will run from July 7 to 31 at the historic Secretariat building — where some of the fathers of Myanmar’s independence were assassinated in 1947 — with support from the Pyinsa Rasa art group. “Our country gained independence in 1948. As of this year, 2018, we have been through 70 years. The artists who were invited to participate in this exhibition have experienced a lot of things during these seven decades. I asked each of them to look back on those decades and present them through art,” said curator Htein Lin.
