Contemporary Artists from Western Canada
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Jennifer Karch Verzé, Lynda Baxter, Gerri Ann Siwek
Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba: the vast and beautiful natural scenery of Canada is the protagonist of this new Imago Mundi catalogue dedicated to contemporary Canadian art. A large collection of 210 works illustrating an area of the country that is a perfect combination of beautiful scenery - from its boundless plains, to the Rocky Mountains, to the Pacific Ocean - and surprising, sustainable cities, that have consistently driven the avant-garde. Established artists and promising young talents with different inspirations, techniques, themes and styles show us, collectively, a vision of beauty and hope that does not falter in the face of the globalization of ideas, currents and representations.
Oh West Canada! Contemporary Artists from Western Canada 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.
