Milk of Dreams:
of the 2022 Biennale
Join an intimate community and discover leading contemporary artists from around the world featured in the 2022 Venice Biennale, "The Milk of Dreams." Together, we will see how today's most innovative artists call attention to and tackle acute, global problems through various creative processes. By viewing and discussing cutting-edge art, we can come to understand different perspectives and approaches to today’s most pressing issues. With a focus on women and historically marginalized artists, we will observe the changing dynamics of gender and race in today's society. Join us for a profound and enlightening experience as we deepen our knowledge and celebrate women artists' most recent contributions to the history of art.
This year, for the first time since its inception in 1895, the Venice Biennale spotlights female and gender nonconforming artists. Curated by Cecilia Alemani,"The Milk of Dreams," gets its title from a book by the Surrealist artist, Leonora Carrington (1917-2011). In her book, Carrington described a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination - a world where everyone and everything is mutable. We will consider the theme of mutability in our discussions and as we address the Biennale's key themes:
The representation of bodies and their metamorphoses
The relationship between individuals and technologies
The connection between bodies and the Earth
