River Gallery

River Gallery

While in Yangon, visit the the River Gallery which showcases Myanmar’s leading contemporary artists.  The original River Gallery was set up in 2005 by Gill Pattison, a New Zealander resident in Yangon since 2002.

“My aim was to showcase Myanmar’s talented contemporary artists who were very little known at that time. I felt strongly that they deserved better representation and exposure to a wider market. I called the new gallery “River”, not only because of its location beside the Yangon River, but also because I liked the notion of the artists’ creations flowing out of the country to be seen and enjoyed by people from all around the world.”
