New Zealand: Kiwi Consciousness - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from New Zealand
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Rosa Maria Falvo, Ngarino Ellis, Andrew Paul Wood
An unprecedented visual story illuminated by a passionate creative autonomy that speaks of pride, courage and moral clarity. A multi-faceted portrait of a land at the end of the world, with a unique and original identity derived from the interplay of cultures and ethnicities. This new Imago Mundi collection brings together 210 works that reflect all the extraordinary vitality of a nation that constantly reinvents itself and guarantees its artists the opportunity to navigate in accordance with a personal compass rather than follow the increasingly virtual and impersonal methods of consumerist art.
New Zealand: Kiwi Consciousness. Contemporary Artists from New Zealand 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.
