About Myanm/art
Myanm/art is a project space for Myanmar contemporary artists, musicians, filmmakers and creative audiences in Yangon. It is a simultaneous space for art exhibitions, where artists can sell and promote their work, as well as a resource center, promoting art education and art histories in Myanmar and abroad. We support ourselves by promoting and selling artists' work, sharing the cost of exhibitions with artists, and renting our space as an event venue. Myanm/art works alongside the local creative community to support and promote contemporary art in experimental, alternative forms. We hope we are reflecting a different side to the art scene in Yangon, and encourage artists from across the country to collaborate with Myanm/art as a platform.

Myanmart is an art gallery in an old colonial building. Beautiful space. They exhibit Myanmar artists who do street art, sculpture, and paintings. Great art tours around the city too. Must see if you love art and want to learn more about culture in Myanmar.

Several of my friends have taken this tour and raved about it. Others have sent visiting friends/family on it as a cool alternative half-day event - now I see why. We hit four galleries on the tour all walking distance. The guide was amazingly knowledgeable about Myanmar's contemporary art scene and shared its history and meaning with us. If you are interested in art take this tour because at the end of it you'll understand far more about; who is who in the scene, the history of Myanmar art, and how artists have been responding to Myanmar's turbulent contemporary political situation.

I contacted Nathalie Johnstone at Myanm/art regarding her art tours and was given the option of either a morning of afternoon tour, that could include the uptown or downtown areas, and studio visits over around 2 hours for US$30.00. I chose the uptown tour with a studio visit. Nathalie is a gallery owner and curator who has been in Yangon for 6 years, and has her own gallery called Myanm/art which I have visited before. Nathalie set the meeting spot of the Yangon Bakehouse, where we met at 9:30am for a coffee. All transport in-between locations was arranged, so we were picked up at 10am to be taken to our first site: Beikthano Gallery, in Golden Valley. At the gallery, we were greeted by the gallery owner and renowned Myanmar contemporary artist U Tin Win, who showed us around the gallery, whilst Nathalie gave us historical context on the local art industry, as well as a tour of the artist's private collection. We then moved on to the Lim Chin Tsong Palace - the State School of Fine Art - to explore the grounds with commentary from Nathalie, in addition to viewing the beautiful building itself, which was a highlight. Following this, we drove a short distance to KZL Gallery, also in Golden Valley, and met the owner, a contemporary artist, who lives and works on site. Here, Nathalie discussed different periods of influence within Myanmar's history that have impacted artist practices and styles, whilst showing us specific examples. We were also able to view the artist's studio, where sculptural works were being made. We then moved onto New Treasure Gallery, also in Golden Valley, for a viewing of the diverse array of contemporary works on show, again with guided commentary, and finally to Studio Square. At Studio Square, we were lucky enough to meet the contemporary artist NCS who had recently exhibited at Nathalie's Gallery. We finished at around 12:30pm at Yangon Bakehouse for lunch and further discussion. This tour was a highlight of my experience of the contemporary art world in Yangon. The context, insight and information that Nathalie shared enriched my visit to each gallery, and the Lim Chin Tsong Palace. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an insider's understanding of contemporary culture and art, regardless of their level of knowledge of art or Myanmar. It is an excellent way to spend a morning or afternoon and can be tailored as participants see fit.
