CNU is holding an art exhibition that supports and expresses solidarity with the democratization of Myanmar.

CNU Museum (Director: Professor Jeong Geum-hee, Department of Fine Arts) currently offers an exhibition entitled “With Myanmar” jointly with the International Visual Culture and Arts Association with Myanmar artists in support of democratization solidarity. The exhibition is being held at Yongbonggwan University History Hall from May 10 to June 7.

In the exhibition, a total of 70 artists, including 20 from Myanmar– 17 of whom are presently in Myanmar– 43 domestic artists, and 7 overseas artists are presenting 100 works of art.

Works by local Myanmar artists were delivered by e-mail, printed out, and displayed anonymously for their safety. The works of Korean artists are held as a special exhibition to commemorate the Gwangju spirit of the May 18 Democratization Movement and show solidarity and support for Myanmar artists. The exhibition is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.

All the pieces on display are paintings, and most of them are works of resistance art that deal with the scars of state violence and the desire for democratization and peace. Myanmar artists, from those in their 20s to those in their 70s, convey their pain and aspirations for democratization in their works.

Myanmar writers wrote on a collective letter sent with the following joint message: “We are very grateful that CNU has supported the people and artists of Myanmar by holding this exhibition. We are making every possible effort to overcome the current situation and doing our best to overcome the current situation in Myanmar. We believe that a better future will finally come."
