The 59th International Art Exhibition, curated by Cecilia Alemani and titled The Milk of Dreams/Il latte dei sogni will take place from 23 April to 27 November 2022, in the Giardini, at the Arsenale, and at various sites around Venice.

The Exhibition which takes its name from a book by Leonora Carrington, takes us on an imaginary journey through metamorphoses of the body and definitions of humanity.
It will focuse on three main themes: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses; the relationship between individuals and technologies; the connection between bodies and the Earth.

The 59th International Art Exhibition will also feature, as usual, the National Participations, with each country presenting its own exhibition in the Pavilions of the Giardini and the Arsenale, and in the historic centre of Venice and a selection of Collateral Events organized by international institutions.

The 59th International Art Exhibition will take place from 23 April to 27 November 2022 (pre-opening on 20, 21 and 22 April), curated by Cecilia Alemani. “As the first Italian woman to hold this position, I intend to give voice to artists to create unique projects that reflect their visions and our society”, Alemani has declared.

Cecilia Alemani is a curator who has organized many exhibitions of contemporary artists. She is currently Director and Chief Curator of High Line Art, the programme of public art of the urban park in New York, and is the past curator of the Italian Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2017.
