其实在缅甸的艺术工作者也是军人政府审查及监督的对象，许多艺术工作者因为创作的作品而被当局投身监狱。熟悉缅甸艺术圈的朋友曾近说过，在缅甸画展开幕 时，画家必须准备一支黑色的 Marker pen, 因为开幕前会有官员来进行审查，如果觉得某一间作品有政治不正确，就必须拿下来，然后将印在宣传单上的作品照片以 Marker pen 涂黑！
这样的一个创作受到高度监视环境下也促使了，向往自由创作的艺术工作者们做出相对应变。而50及60年代兴起于欧洲的现代艺术形态 － 行为艺术Performance art 成了他们的另一种艺术表达的出口，一些缅甸艺术工作者平常画着风景水彩画，下一秒转身就成了前卫的行为艺术家，虽然有时这样做也逃不过无所不在的艺术审 查。
不同于绘画或雕塑的构成方式，行为艺术需具备四个条件即 时间，地点，行为艺术者的身体，及现场观众。 行为艺术强调过程意义，及艺术创作自由，同时也有某一些是注重观众的参与，甚至一起共同经历创作的过程。然而行为艺术也有只能存在当下的时间局限，虽然过 程也可以用录影记录下来，但是却失去了现场感。其实某个程度也成了缅甸当局在进行艺术审核上面对解读及追究上的挑战。
近两年，随着昂山素姬的释放政局的改变，缅甸的艺术限制也得到了一些松绑。这些改变直接影响缅甸艺术工作者们的创作思维与方式。来自缅甸首都仰光的艺术组 织 New Zero Art space 的策展人将为我们述说这些年来的变化，冲击及思考。同时，3位来自 New Zero Art space 的艺术工作者 Yin Nan Wai , Nora Thyitar 也将现场进行行为艺术表演。
