Out of the Bush Garden - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Central-Eastern Canada
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Francesca Valente, Peggy Gale
A new, broad and diverse collection that Imago Mundi is dedicating to Canada: 216 works that bring together the creativity and expressive cultures of artists from the central-eastern side of the country: Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador. From the complex and erratic mosaic of the canvases, the different cultural souls of this vast country emerge, as do the contamination and amalgamation of different languages, colours and forms. Like a long journey among works and inspirations that seem to say: look at us and in the light of the Great North you will discover something about us and about yourself. Something singular and, at the same time, universal.
Out of the Bush Garden Contemporary Artists from Central-Eastern Canada 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.
www.imagomundiart.com is the web platform of the entire project.
