La Biennale di Venezia 2015, Italy

FONDAZIONE GIORGIO CINI, Island of San Giorgio Maggiore

In the current climate of arrested utopias, attacks on cultural heritage, assaults on imagination and knowledge, Imago Mundi, Luciano Benetton’s global art project, comes to Venice to propose an art without borders that breaks the silence, goes beyond differences, pushes forward civilization. The exhibition MAP OF THE NEW ART includes collections from more than 40 nations and native peoples representing the five continents: 10x12 cm artworks by 6930 artists. On exhibition, Imago Mundi collections of Algeria, the Kalahari Bushmen, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda/Rwanda/Burundi (AFRICA); Brazil, the Caribbean, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, the United States and Indigenous Native Americans (AMERICAS); Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Jordan, North Korea, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Thailand, Tibet (ASIA); Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland (EUROPE); the Aboriginal artists of Australia (OCEANIA).
