Myanmar's Moment

Article Body: 

Asia Society is proud to present Myanmar's Moment, a series of leading-edge programming built around the groundbreaking Asia Society Museum exhibition Buddhist Art of Myanmar, which runs from February 10 to May 10, 2015, in New York City. The exhibition is the first major presentation in the West devoted solely to the art of Myanmar and includes a treasure trove of sculptures of the Buddha, many of which are leaving Myanmar for the first time.

"Asia Society has deployed extraordinary diplomacy and artistic expertise to share these treasures," says Josette Sheeran, president and CEO of Asia Society. "These alluring statues, and the smiles of these Buddhas, offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for viewers. Knowing how hard it was — given the recent history of Myanmar and the distant homes of these works — makes me that much prouder of the exhibition. It's a tour de force."

Asia Society has been deeply engaged with Myanmar for years on policy issues as well as arts and culture. This approach, drawing on the arts and policy, is at the core of the institution's work, and mirrors what the Society has done in recent years on China, India, Iran, Pakistan and other Asian nations. "In the case of Myanmar," said Sheeran, "we are leveraging a long and profound engagement with a nation that has undergone great changes in the past few years." Read more
