Beyond Pressure Festival of Contemporary Art, 2012

To widen the scope of contemporary arts, this year 5th Beyond Pressure annual festival has change its regular title “Festival of Performance Art” into “Festival of Contemporary Art” comprising performance, installation, video and graffiti arts. The live performances in the Kareikweik Oo Yin Gabar and other art pieces such as Installatin, video & graffiti art in SeinLanSoPyae Garden are displayed compound in order to be accessibale to general public. We got official permission from Yangon regional government to organize the series of events and open air exhibitions in the said public places. We created this year a platform where young artists in the region get in touch each other as we made preferential invitation for younger artists to join this 5th annual festival. And we hope that the experience those invited artists exchange will also contribute, as a new step forward, to the collaboration between regional young generation artists for the sake of ASEAN community. We note that the participent artists expressed concern about audience who might have been ashamed to take part in the improvised actions. But, by analysing the local people’s alienated perception of contemporary art, you can tell the audience’s has different levels of perception. * (Note from Curator_ Moe Satt)

Unlike the past annual Beyond Pressure festival, eventhough we did not confrant the same old troubles this year, we still struggle to make it through. Anyhow, this year festival was perfectly successful. Despite the annex event happened in Prome (Pyay) has unexcepted police intervention, this year festival has a high degree of success if you look back overall. We would like to say thanks a million to audience , volunteers, those authorities who say no and those who say yes ,both from Yangon and Prome, local poets from Prome. * (Note from Co- curator_ Phone Myint)
