Morocco: the surprise of absence - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Morocco
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Emanuele Benedetti, Anwar Rtili Alexander
A broad and colourful panorama that bears witness to the intense richness and strong desire for transformation of the contemporary artistic scene in Morocco. 140 paintings, the work of established and emerging artists who, in search a personal journey, pay homage to a pictorial tradition that has historically given voice to contradictions and new awakenings. As in the solitude of the Sahara, the challenge is to go and lose oneself; and then find oneself again in new oases of style and thought to be shared, amid iconoclastic tradition and the influences of globalization, amid the conceptual, the figurative, the abstract, amid ancient legends and explorations.
Morocco: the surprise of absence 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.
