Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art (Tephra ICA) presents Time Sensitive, an exhibition of works by Myanmar artist collective, 3AM, curated by Adriel Luis. Since 2016, members Ma Ei, Ko Latt, and Yadanar Win have collaborated on works that dissolve the lines between art and activism, performance, and media.
3AM's work responds to social conditions that are pressing in Myanmar, but that resonate throughout the world – the repression of social critique, the complexities of queer life, and the effects of globalization, to name a few. Ever since Myanmar's military coup in February this year, internet shutdowns, public uprisings, and police violence against demonstrators and artists, the nation's turmoils have been placed back in the global spotlight.
Tephra ICA is pleased to show 3AM's works in the United States for the first time in support of the collective's efforts to share Myanmar's lived experiences, critical perspectives, and radical imaginations with the rest of the world.
