Tradition & Divinity - Imago Mundi
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Neeraj Ajmani, Aung Min
A special country on the world map and its contemporary art scene, a hotbed of experimentation and research. 144 10x12 cm works from several generations of artists representing Myanmar, whose singular energy embodies the birth of a renewed aesthetic impulse, corresponding to the new path towards democracy and the wellbeing of the country. The inseparable relationship between art and the territory, and the link between local identity and development, constitute the cornerstone of creative expression in the former Burma: the Imago Mundi collection offers its contribution and participates in the vibrant wave towards change and the flourishing of a figurative art that reflects the cultural development of the whole nation.
Tradition & Divinity. Contemporary Artists from Myanmar 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.
