until 28.05.17 / 10:00
"Face to Face", the new Imago Mundi exhibition will be held at Bosanski kulturni centar (Bosnian cultural center) in Sarajevo, from the 9th to the 28th of May 2017.
Dialogues, comparisons and bridges: 10x12 cm works by 900 artists compose the mosaic of contemporary creativity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia.
It is no coincidence that Imago Mundi’s latest appointment takes place on 9th May, Europe Day, in Sarajevo, a key city for European and world history, evocative of cruel and painful wounds. The aspiration is to overcome borders, heal rifts and build new paths, channelling the creative energy of nearly 900 artists, who have come together in the name of a shared ideal of beauty.
The opening of the exhibition will be preceded by a round table, which will be held at 12pm/noon and will be curated by Claudio Scorretti and Irina Ungureanu. The event aims to generate a conversation on the subject of contemporary art in these countries.
Imago Mundi is the art collection of works commissioned and collected by fashion icon Luciano Benetton on his travels around the world.
