Libya: Hurriya - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Libya
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Najlaa El-Ageli, Hadia Gana, Hala Ghellali
A unique collection that tells the stories of women and men, young people and older masters who, in the dark days of despair, design, create and voice their heart and soul with courage, determination and pride. 140 works that highlight both new aesthetic alphabets in a rich, lively and colourful art scene, and the significance of a group of artists whose contribution of vitality and hope for a revival is remarkable. Libya: Hurriya (Libya: freedom) marks a new and extraordinary stage in the Imago Mundi artistic journey. Above all, in the name of art, it pays tribute to a country and a people, in the certainty that culture holds a fundamental role in creating social cohesion and contributing to reconciliation and peace.
Libya: Hurriya. Contemporary Artists from Libya 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.
