A Shining Constant in the Artistic Sky - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Venezuela
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Andrea de Carvalho, Raúl Felipe Peñalver, Silvio Mignano
One hundred and forty works where deep feelings informed by contact with nature, rituals and the languages of a culture that is oppressed but not destroyed, coexist with aspirations for a fairer world, in which dignity, independence, justice and beauty can give a higher meaning to human existence. Imago Mundi pays tribute to the Venezuela of today and the courageous resourcefulness of its artists who are not giving up, and instead are opening up to the world. Talented and ambitious women and men evoke that “shining constant in the artistic sky” and confront the crude contradictions of the country, to trace a visual and imaginative picture of what perceptive Venezuelaness represents today.
A Shining Constant in the Artistic Sky. Contemporary Artists from Venezuela 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.
