CubAdentro - Imago Mundi
Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Carlos Gamez, Napoles Maricel Gonzalez, Maria Elena Orozco
A kaleidoscopic journey into the heart of Cuba via its art. 144 works by world-renowned maestros of colour and emerging young artists who, together, encompass every region of the Isla Grande, "the most beautiful land that human eyes have ever seen," according to Christopher Columbus. A beauty that is reflected in the overall mosaic created in this collection: paintings, engravings, photographic and relief works. A beauty that expresses a culture of images, the ideological pillar of contemporary society that emerges alive, strong and dynamic, able to dialogue with others, to communicate with the world, to connect with the best of universal codes without losing its identity.
CubAdentro 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 10x12cm format.
