Ojo Latino - Imago Mundi
La mirada de un continente
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Mariano Malacchini, Skármeta Antonio, Alfredo Torres, Manuel Basoalto
Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, Uruguay, Venezuela. This collection of 200 paintings is a mosaic not only of countries, but also of peoples, ethnic groups and movements that continually construct and deconstruct the reality of Latin America. It is a collection that brings together established and emerging artists with different personalities, styles, themes and techniques, in the name of colour, beauty, movement and dreams. These artists not only bear witness to the evolution of an entire continent, but provide us with expressive clues to a new project for the world and society.
Ojo Latino is the collection that set in motion Imago Mundi, 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.
