Luciano Benetton Collection Presents Imago Mundi

By Sarah Bochicchio

July 16, 2013

This August, the Luciano Benetton Collection will present Imago Mundi, a far-reaching and exciting exhibition at the 55th Venice Biennale. Imago Mundi brings together more than 1,000 pieces, all of which were composed within a 10x12cm rectangle. Although their sizes may be alike, the works come from five continents and were created by various artists that Luciano Benetton encountered during the past five years of his travels.

Beginning in Venice, the exhibit runs through October. However, interested viewers will still have the opportunity to visit the show after it closes at the Biennale, as due to the diverse nature of the artworks it is only natural that Imago Mundi is a traveling exhibition. With a common format and goal in mind, Benetton hopes that his collection will unify the various places that it represents (including Australia, Japan, Latin America, Russia, and the United States).

Benetton explains that he wants to share the experience with as many people as possible, for “Imago Mundi is a cultural, demographic and global project that looks to the new frontiers of art—personalities, countries, emerging languages and different cultures—to foster openness towards the world and new horizons, and the coexistence of expressive diversity.”
