Papua New Guinea/A New Dawn - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Papua New Guinea
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Jeffry Feeger, Joan Winter
A real-time snapshot of a distant world. 140 works that bring to light a land that is mysterious for many, a society and a culture that are ethnically and linguistically complex (over 800 languages) partly due to the morphology of an area largely covered by ancient and impenetrable rainforests. On the eve of a new dawn for the contemporary art of Papua New Guinea, this collection testifies to the strength of the bond between creativity, tradition and the past, revealing the many cultural and mental worlds of the country.
Papua New Guinea/A New Dawn. Contemporary Artists from Papua New Guinea 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.
