Amid Desert and Future - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Janet Rady, Suzy Sikorski, Mahnaz Fancy
Between ancient tradition and a future open to the world, the artists of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain reveal their idea of Art. The 138 works created by artists of different generations reflect a diversity of disciplines with points of reference from both Western and Eastern traditions. Today the artists are more than ever committed, with awareness and determination, to conveying their language, their history and their vision in the context of the global discourse of the history of art.
Amid Desert and Future. Contemporary Artists from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
