The Milk of Dreams / Il latte dei sogni (Catalogue Biennale Arte Venezia 2022)
Cecilia Alemani (Ed)
La Biennale di Venezia, 2022
The 59th International Art Exhibition, in Venice from 23 April to 27 November 2022, is titled The Milk of Dreams. Named after a book by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011), the Exhibition takes the artist’s fanciful creatures and many other figures of transformation as companions on an imaginary journey through metamorphoses of the body and of humanity.
Volume I of the Catalogue is dedicated to the International Exhibition, curated by Cecilia Alemani. This volume includes the Curator’s original contribution as well as a wide range of illustrations and critical essays by some of today’s most cutting-edge thinkers and writers. Each artist is introduced by a critical text as well as an iconographic apparatus.This volume also includes a wide array of original writing, conversations, and reprinted texts that capture many of the concerns set forth by the Exhibition while expanding to broader and equally timely preoccupations.
Volume II of the Catalogue presents the Participating Countries and the Collateral Events of the 59th International Art Exhibition. It includes lavishly illustrated texts exploring the various projects that will be on display in Venice from 23 April to 27 November 2022.
