Imago Mundi – Irish Collection Catalogue Published
2016: an image of Ireland – Contemporary Artists from Ireland the Irish Collection of the Imago Mundi Project has just been published including work from over 100 invited Irish artists including myself, plus Eoin Mac Lochlainn and Kelly Ratchford from the Olivier Cornet Gallery.
Imago Mundi is the collection of works commissioned and collected by Luciano Benetton on his travels around the world, involving, on a voluntary and non-profit basis, established and emerging artists from many different countries. Each artist created a work whose only restriction is its 10cm x 12 cm format, contributing to the creation of a remarkable artistic geography.
The social ambition of Imago Mundi is to promote a knowledge and awareness of art and, through this art, of the world. The numerous collections will be taken on a tour without frontiers to present them to the widest possible number of people, together through this web platform, catalogues and exhibitions in collaboration with private institutions, international organisations and public museums.
The increasingly global Imago Mundi project is further evolving and will involve 80 countries by the end of 2015 for a total of over 10,000 artworks. The Irish Collection of the Imago Mundi Project is being curated by Ciara Gibbons and we look forward to an exhibition of the works in Ireland in the near future.
