Description of Artwork: In 1968, the Exhibition Hall of the Union of Mongolian artists opened an exhibit called "First Exhibition of Young Painters," which featured several paintings that diverged from the government sanctioned style of "socialist realism." The paintings symbolized Mongolia's first steps towards modern art with the use of abstract shapes and experimental colors. The show included such works as, "Mother" by G. Soosoi, "Khovsgal Lake" by P. Baldandorj, "Ten Goats" and "Ten Camels" by G. Dunburee and "Mother's Honesty" by O. Tsevegjav.
On June 17, 2008, Khan Bank curator Ts. Uranchimeg opened an exhibit at the Art Gallery called, "the bourgeois art," featuring many of the original works from the 1968 exhibit.
