Two hundred and twenty different works, in common the desire for expressive freedom, the ability to surprise the viewer, the will to keep moving. A collection of inspirations, representations, situations, ways to explore and take action, visions, dreams and colours in which Sicily constructs its own story through a succession of different viewpoints on contemporary artistic creation. Sicilian visual artists, musicians, designers, poets, and architects, chosen by a pool of curators, together build a kaleidoscope that comes to life through material and chromatic suggestions, representative of the many facets of an island of contradictions that, perhaps for this reason, is so irresistible and elusive.
Identità siciliane. Contemporary Artists from Sicily 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, native people or region (as in the case of this collection, the first dedicated to a Region of Italy), 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.
