59th Biennale di Venezia
The Milk of Dreams
April 23–November 27, 2022
Giardini and Arsenale, Venice
The Milk of Dreams, curated by Cecilia Alemani for the 59th Biennale di Venezia, takes its title from a book by Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) in which the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly reenvisioned through the prism of the imagination. With works by 213 artists from fifty-eight countries, the exhibition focuses on three thematic areas in particular: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses, the relationship between individuals and technologies, and the connection between bodies and the Earth. Work by Louise Bonnet and Jadé Fadojutimi is included.
