by artist Tun Win Aung (Myanmar)
Tun Win Aung will talk about his long-lasting friendship and multiple collaborations with Phyoe Kyi. Since the artists first met in Yangon’s art school, they established a profound connection which unfolded through continuous conversations, intellectual exchanges, and repeated artistic partnerships. Tun Win Aung will present the collaborative projects developed in Mingun from 2003 and 2013 and The Art & Museum Project, the platform he runs together with artist Wah Nu, which originally triggered Phyoe Kyi’s The Museum Project. While conveying the visionary thrust of Phyoe Kyi’s work, Tun Win Aung will also highlight the challenges related to envisioning a contemporary art institution in the context of Myanmar.
