Burma in Transition Exhibition

January 22, 2013 to February 28, 2013
Slater Concourse, Aidekman Art Gallery

In May 2012, the students from the Program for Narrative and Documentary Practice traveled to Burma to explore daily life in the country‚Äôs biggest city, Yangon, as the culminating workshop of the yearlong course. As Burma currently sits at a crossroads, between the oppression of the last decades and the recent promise of an opening society; between its isolation and the possibility of rejoining the international community; and between the rising geographical powers of China and India, it was an opportune time to explore the many changing dynamics within the city.  The students were led by PNDP Founding Director Gary Knight and PNDP Program Coordinator Samuel James.
