Philippines: inter tropical convergence zone (ITCZ) - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from the Philippines
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, PSP (Project Space Pilipinas), Young Joo Ko
Convergences and cultural blends, influences and traditions merged over time with very modern expressions: Imago Mundi pays tribute to the contemporary visual art of the Philippines with the works of over 200 artists. The collection is an expression of different temperaments, minds and instincts, narrated through an extraordinary creative mix: from drawing to painting, from sculpture to photography, video art to mixed media and multimedia. An artistic journey through history: from the pantheon of pre-Christian gods to Catholicism, to the abstract, expressionist, conceptual and pop art.
PHILIPPINES: INTER TROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE (ITCZ). Contemporary Artists from the Philippines 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.
