Looking Down Under - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Australia
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Rosa Maria Falvo, Chris McAuliffe
Imago Mundi returns to Australia and, after contemporary Aboriginal art, pays tribute to the new creativity of the Anglo-Saxon culture with a collection of 210 works. Young talents and established artists brought together from an unusual and extraordinary perspective, in a real-time illustration of the new perceptions, insights, contradictions and paradoxes of the 'Lucky Country', the world’s largest island and its smallest continent, inhabited by one of the oldest existing civilizations but within a society that is among the youngest on Earth. Varied stories that form a unique composition made of many styles and cultures, of local voices and reinterpretations of European influences that aspire to the formation of an original identity.
Looking Down Under 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.
