Tu nombre es un laberinto - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from El Salvador
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, David Urbina and Mauricio Esquivel, Elena Salamanca
El Salvador through the eyes of its artists. 140 works that intertwine each of the cultures successfully embraced by the smallest country in Central America: from the Maya, to colonial Spanish and more recent US influences. A tormented memory with the distinctive Salvadorian blend of design and painting, art and crafts. A collective and visionary portrayal in which a generous humanity struggles, survives, stumbles and smiles, through colours, small gestures and sentiments of daily resistance in the face of its painful recent past and the contradictions of a challenging present.
Tu nombre es un laberinto. Contemporary Artists from El Salvador 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.
www.imagomundiart.com is the web platform of the entire project
