Asia Art Archive (AAA) and Myanmar Art Resource Center and Archive (MARCA) announce Mobile Library: Myanmar, which will run from November 2014 to March 2015.
Mobile Library is a periodic initiative organised in partnership with cultural collaborators in different countries throughout Asia to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas. By co-organising events and enabling the circulation of printed matter, this programme activates new possibilities to engage with art as a form of knowledge.
Over 450 publications—from periodicals, artist monographs, and exhibition catalogues, to books on theory, philosophy, independent art spaces, curating, and archives—have been gifted to the emerging non-profit Myanmar Art Resource Center and Archive. MARCA, having translated synopses for many of the books into Burmese, will circulate the entire book collection to Goethe-Institut, Myanmar Deitta, National University of Arts and Culture, New Zero Art Space, Pansodan Scene, and TS1 Gallery in Yangon before moving on to various locations in Mandalay.
Prior editions have included Mobile Library: Vietnam with Sàn Art in Ho Chi Minh City (2011) and Mobile Library: Sri Lanka with Raking Leaves in Jaffna and Colombo (2013).
