The Milk of Dreams - Biennale Arte 2022.  

"The exhibition The milk of dreams takes its title from a book of fairy tales by Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) - explains Cecilia Alemani - in which the surrealist artist describes a magical world in which life is constantly reinvented through the prism of imagination and in which it is allowed to change, transform, become other than oneself. The exhibition stems from the numerous conversations that have taken place with many artists in recent months. From these dialogues, many questions have persistently emerged that evoke not only this precise historical moment in which the very survival of humanity is threatened, but also summarize many other issues that have dominated the sciences, arts and myths of our time".  

The exhibition will be accompanied by 80 National Participations in the historic Pavilions in the Giardini, the Arsenale and in the historic center of Venice. There are 5 countries present for the first time at the Art Biennale: the Republic of Cameroon, Namibia, Nepal, the Sultanate of Oman and Uganda. Republic of Kazakhstan, Republic of Kyrgyzstan and Republic of Uzbekistan participate for the first time with their own pavilion. The Italian Pavilion at the Tese delle Vergini in the Arsenale, supported and promoted by the Ministry of Culture, General Direction for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Peripheries, will be curated by Eugenio Viola.
