“Didnt find it but the Jetty itself was a far better art gallery”
Review of TS1 Yangon

TS1 Yangon
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: TS.1 is Myanmar's first pop-up concept set within the existing Transit Shed No.1 building at the waterfront of downtown Yangon. This Yangon Pop-Up Project includes three distinct spaces for commerce, culture and cuisine. The concept, developed by Pun & Projects, further connects Myanmar with the global community and increases momentum toward urban renewal and cultural exchange in the country. In keeping with the pop-up concept, spreading in popularity throughout international locales including Europe and the US, the Yangon Pop-Up Project incorporates different exhibitions in the gallery space, different retailers in the retail space and different menus in the restaurant space; all "popping-up" and rotating regularly.

The riverside and the jetties arebehind a high wall, with only narrow exits every now and then. We tried the one opposite Phone Gyi Street by Chinatown and were completely overthrown of the longtailboats transfering people to the other side of the river. After an hour or two we realised that there is no connection to the ts1 from this side of the wall from up here but it didnt bother us at all.
Visit at from 4.30pm until sunset/darkness and youll experience an amazing longtailboat show, that I bet is far more attractive than the art gallery.

Myanmar's first pop-up concept, TS1 (daily 10.00-18.30) is a modern space right on the Yangon River that when we visited hosted a gay-themed (wow!) photography exhibition but not much else. While the place is rather small, we appreciate it for three reasons. First, it's an oasis of calm in an area where otherwise no tourist would visit minutes away from the hustle and bustle of increasingly traffic-choked Yangon. Second, it proves that Yangon's arts scene is developing; so is the people's open-mindedness to embrace it. Last but not least, true to its original structure, it demonstrates a form of urban renewal: how old buildings can serve new purposes. Reminding us of Bangkok's Asiatique, this gallery/shop sits harmoniously in its shabby industrial setting. If Yangon can retain its colonial core, arguably Southeast Asia's most impressive, the Garden City will surely shine like Singapore.

Fantastic to find a place like this in the hussle bussle of Yangon.

Unfortunately couldn't spend more than a few minutes here as I was passing.

The city is in much need of places like this, a retreat for the mind, a place to gather thoughts.

I'll be intrigued to visit this place the next time that I am in Yangon.

I stumbled upon this little gem while walking along Lanthit jetty on a Sunday evening. Despite the lack of obvious signage outside, I I couldn't help but ventured inside feeling arrested by the sight of artist Aung Myint's works peaking at us from the gallery. My friend and I were promptly greeted by a friendly attendant which made us feel welcomed. Sure you can say the gallery space could have easily been in London or New York but because the design and materials used in renovation stayed true to the original structure, it sits harmoniously in its bustling and ragged industrial surroundings. We were there just 15 minutes before they closed and we had the whole exhibition to ourselves which was kind of amazing. I love how the natural light flooded the whole space even after the sun had set and added new depth and dimension to the artists' work primarily in black, white and red. TS1 is a fine concept perfect for Yangon and I hope it will be just the start of exciting urban revitalisation. I would have liked to stayed longer and I will definitely be back soon!
