On the occasion of the publication of Afterall journal issue 46, ‘Reconstruction: Performance and Collective Action’, we are pleased to host a launch event at Lokanat Galleries, Yangon on Saturday 20 October 2018.
Using Yin Ker’s essay ‘Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? Premises for Burmese Contemporary Art’ as a catalyst, the event will discuss the complexities of the Burmese contemporary art scene. The event will include a public conversation between the author and the artist Po Po, whose voice and insights were foregrounded in the text alongside Min Thein Sung, Tun Win Aung & Wah Nu. The second part of the event includes presentations by Ana Bilbao (Afterall Reseach Centre) and Anca Rujoiu (NTU CCA Singapore), members of Afterall journal's editorial team who will introduce their research on artists' initiatives.

On the 6–7 March 2019, University of the Arts London and the Paul Mellon Centre for the Studies in British Art are convening a symposium on the LYC Museum & Art Gallery (LYC Museum), an exhibition space located in the village of Banks astride Hadrian’s Wall that showcased the work of more than 320 artists between 1972 and 1983. Transforming dilapidated farm buildings into a hyperactive space for art, the LYC Museum was the single-minded effort of artist Li Yuan-chia (1929–94), whose initials gave the museum its name.
