Biennale Arte, 2022
The 59th International Art Exhibition will take place from 23 April to 27 November 2022, curated by Cecilia Alemani. “As the first Italian woman to hold this position, I intend to give voice to artists to create unique projects that reflect their visions and our society”, Alemani has declared. “The exhibition focuses on three themes in particular: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses; the relationship between individuals and technologies; the connection between bodies and the Earth.”
‘The Milk of Dreams’ is the title of the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, taking its name from a book by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011). The 59th International Art Exhibition will also feature, as usual, the National Participations, with each country presenting its own exhibition in the Pavilions of the Giardini and the Arsenale, and in the historic centre of Venice. This edition will once again include a selection of Collateral Events organized by international institutions, which will hold their own shows and initiatives in Venice.
