Nawaday Tharlar Gallery
Nawaday Tharlar Gallery in downtown Yangon is a must-visit for any devotee of Myanmar’s contemporary art scene. Founder and owner Pyay Way is always more than happy to talk visitors through his many holdings. Many of the paintings in the thukhuma collection were purchased at Nawaday Tharlar.
Pansodan Gallery in downtown Yangon is a key hub for Myanmar’s contemporary art scene. Founders and owners Aung Soe Min and Nance Cunningham carry a large number of paintings, and always offer a warm welcome. On Tuesday evenings, they host an open house with free food and cheap beer. Three or four blocks along the street from Pansodan Gallery is Pansodan Scene, a performance space used for regular debates and shows. More than half of the paintings in the thukhuma collection were bought from the Pansodan.
Studio Square Gallery
Studio Square Gallery, close to the heart of Yangon, is a collective established in 2003 by five artists: Ba Khine, Hein Tint, Min Zaw, Nyein Chan Su and Tartie. Trading only works by its co-owners, it is nevertheless well worth a visit. Most of the paintings by these five artists in the thukhuma collection were purchased at Studio Square.
