Looking Eastward - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia and Uzbekistan
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Vasily Startsev, Alexander Borovsky
Small paintings to illuminate a varied artistic universe, a boundless space that transcends political boundaries to bring together, through history and destiny, people and countries ranging from the most western districts of Russia to Kamchatka in the far east, from the Ukraine to Uzbekistan, from Armenia to Kazakhstan.
A personal interpretation of the world and of our time, offered by artists destined to be the protagonists of the figurative culture of tomorrow. And, just like Kandinsky, they remind us that "art transcends the limits within which the time would like to compress it, and indicates the content of the future."
Looking Eastward 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. Each country is represented by the works of established and emerging artists, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10 x 12 cm format.
