Selamta Ethiopia - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Ethiopia
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Feisal Osman, Eshetu Tiruneh
A circular journey in search of our origins. 140 canvasses, fruit of the labour, ingenuity, creativity and commitment of established and emerging artists, to explore Ethiopia, the region of the Earth that saw the first steps of man. A social historical, anthropological and cultural melting pot, which, like its art, succeeds in both preserving its identity and simultaneously embracing diverse and hybrid styles from all the contemporary movements, offering up its artistic achievements to the world and the art of today.
Selamta Ethiopia 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 10x12cm format.
