Rebels and Reform

Curated by visual artist Ryan Libre, "Rebels and Reform" showcases over 50 photographers from Burma/Myanmar. It is showing from March 8 to 21st in the Visual Arts Complex (VAC) Gallery (lower level) on the CU Boulder campus.

The opening is scheduled for March 18th at 5pm, followed by a panel at 7pm in VAC 1B88 with Kachin refugees, artist Ryan Libre, and visiting scholar Michael Jerryson. The panel will focus on the Kachin ethnic group and also address issues facing all religious and ethnic minorities in Burma/Myanmar today. 

This photo showcase gives context and faces to stories you have never heard, from a country you don’t know how to call. As freedom of expression starts to peak its head out from 50 years of harsh censorship the visual arts scene in Burma is getting interesting. It is scratching the surface of this exciting but still risky time for photography in Burma.
