The exhibition of the arts of women artists from different Southeast Asia countries has been organized by New Zero Art Space in July, 2012. The artists are from Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia. The show included different mediums, paintings, photography and installations. Most of the artists from Myanmar are young emerging artists and the exchange was the great relationship between respective countries. Not only the exhibition, the exchange also included the two days symposium and performance event. The exhibition has been shown at Lokanat Art Galleries in Yangon and the symposium and performance art event have been happened at New Zero Art Space. From this exchange, the artists can share different experiences and ideas from each others and also the participants got the experiences of different cultures. At the same the participants knew how the art societies are running in different countries. As the artists are from different background, the presented art works reflected the situations, living hood, beliefs, cultures and identity of the women in different parts of the world.
