59th Venice Biennale

Giardini della Biennale / Venice / Art

The Venice Biennale is back! After a year’s delay due to the pandemic, the Biennale returns and its theme is “The Milk of Dreams.” The title comes from a magical book by the Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917–2011), created for her children and full of wondrous creatures that speak to the transformative power of imagination. The curator for the 59th edition is Cecilia Alemani, the director and chief curator of High Line Art. According to Alemani, “The Milk of Dreams” focuses on “three thematic areas in particular: the representation of bodies and their metamorphosis; the relationship between individuals and technologies; the connection between bodies and the Earth.” —E.C.
