A new partnership between the Aga Khan Museum and the Luciano Benetton Foundation’s Imago Mundi, dedicated to fostering dialogue and understanding between cultures and communities, has jointly created a travelling exhibition entitled Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From.
Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From channels the second-generation experience in a series of diverse artistic commissions and loans exploring cross-cultural artistic realities.
The exhibition which opened at Imago Mundi’s Gallerie delle Prigioni in Treviso, Italy, in November 2019, made its North American premiere at the Aga Khan Museum in February 2020 (Feb 25, 2020 – Apr 13, 2020). Source
At the launch ceremony, held in London’s new Aga Khan Centre on Oct 9, 2019, the partnership and exhibition were introduced by Dr. Radwan Khawatmi, Board of Directors, Aga Khan Museum, Luciano Benetton, Chairman Fondazione Imago Mundi, and Prince Amyn Aga Khan, Chairman of the Board, Aga Khan Museum. The institutions’ shared values were highlighted. Prince Amyn referred to the Museum’s mission to reflect how cultures connect and dialogue with another, and said the exhibition is “an excellent example of that, having as it does the theme of migration.” Source
