The Milk of Dreams: Biennale Venice 2022


Named after a children’s book by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington, the 59th Venice Biennale takes Carrington’s fey creatures, along with other figures of transformation, as companions on an imaginary journey through the metamorphoses of bodies and slippery definitions of humanity. Volume I of this two-part publication addresses the conceptual basis of The Milk of Dreams, as developed by curator Cecilia Alemani, and further elaborates upon its thematic threads. Each artist from the 2022 Biennale is introduced by way of a critical text and an iconographic apparatus. The volume includes Alemani’s original exhibition texts and a plethora of original essays by some of today’s most cutting-edge thinkers and writers, with conversations and reprinted texts concerning the exhibition: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses, the relationship between individuals and technologies, and the connection between bodies and the earth. Volume II of the catalog presents the participating countries and the collateral events of the biennale; its lavishly illustrated texts explore the various projects on display in Venice. Artists include: Sophia Al-Maria, Josephine Baker, Djuna Barnes, Jadé Fadojutimi, Nan Goldin, Robert Grosvenor, Tishan Hsu, Jacqueline Humphries, Allison Katz, Kapwani Kiwanga, Barbara Kruger, Hannah Levy, Liliane Lijn, Candice Lin, Precious Okoyomon, Akosua Adoma Owusu, Elle Pérez, Aki Sasamoto, Sable Elyse Smith, Kaari Upson, Andra Ursuta, Cecilia Vicuña, Marianne Vitale, Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller and Laura Wheeler Waring.
