At this time when freedom of expression is threatened in the country, Chuu Wai and together with 2 Burmese artists have in common to question the place of women in Burmese society as well as the situation of ethnic minorities. The French Institute of Luxembourg invites curator Marie Pierre Mol to present an exhibition of these three committed artists, representatives of contemporary artistic creation in Myanmar.
For the opening, a conference will be organised on the occasion of World Human Rights Day.
Chuu Way has a degree in Information Technology from Mandalay University of Technology, and an Art degree from National University of Art and Culture in Mandalay. Her paintings express her interest in the condition of women and reflect the different forms that discrimination against women takes according to cultural traditions.
Chuu Way has presented 8 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 30 group exhibitions in Myanmar and abroad, particularly in London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Canberra. Chuu has been invited to speak as a speaker at prestigious conferences like the Women’s Forum.
