“Myanmar Uncensored” First Unveiling After 40 Years of World Isolation

Myanmar Uncensored First Unveiling After 40 Years of World IsolationSaturday, December 7, 1pm-4pm – Portofino South Beach Penthouse, 300 South Point Drive, Miami Beach

Paula Tin Nyo, founder & CEO of Yone Arts is pleased to announce the U.S. premiere of censored artwork from her native country of Myanmar during Art Basel Week in Miami. This groundbreaking body of artwork by Southeast Asian Myanmar artists has never been seen outside of Myanmar. It represents the finest contemporary art of the country of Myanmar, which has skyrocketed into the international limelight since 2012, when its 40 year military regime stepped down from power.

This group show represents the first sizeable shipment of contemporary artwork since U.S. trade sanctions were suspended in 2012 from the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). Obama’s post-inaugural visit to Myanmar put it on the map and it is currently considered the hottest emerging market in the world.

The first U.S. unveiling of Yone Arts will be Saturday, December 7 from 1-4pm at a private penthouse in the sky at the Portofino Towers building at 300 South Pointe Drive in South Beach by invitation only. The event will be co-hosted by Yone Arts founder, Paula Tin Nyo, and Diane and Jessica Lieberman of South Beach International Realty. It will be a true celebration of freedom of expression in this private invitation only exhibition of previously censored artwork from Myanmar.

Yone Arts artwork will be on public display as an invited participant of Art Stage Singapore, the leading art fair in Southeast Asia from January 16-19, 2014. But for now the first ‘sneak peek’ will be in Miami during Art Basel Week.
