Native Art Visual Visions - Imago Mundi
Contemporary North American Indigenous Artists
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Jennifer Karch Verzè, Ed Chamerlain, Anthony Deiter
Extraordinary visions, cultural encounters, memories, hidden stories and a unique relationship – spiritual and harmonious - with the environment and nature. Imago Mundi presents contemporary North American Native art and pays tribute to a people through the creativity of over 200 artists, both established names and promising talents formed in the communities, professional art schools and universities; today’s protagonists of the 'Native Renaissance'. Paintings, sculptures, photographs, graphics, engravings, illustrations, fiber art, cartoons, fashion design, mixed media: works that reflects a new awareness and illustrate the vitality and excellence of indigenous artistic expression with its myriad stories, tensions, collisions, emotions, successes.
Native Art Visual Visions. Contemporary North American Indigenous Artists 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.
