The 59th International Art Exhibition will be titled THE MILK OF DREAMS. This name is borrowed from a book by Leonora Carrington, in which, as Cecilia Alemani says, “the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination, and where everyone can change, be transformed, become something and someone else. The exhibition takes us on an imaginary journey through metamorphoses of the body and definitions of humanity.”
This year’s Venice Biennale will also feature 80 national pavilions, including five countries participating for the first time: Cameroon, Namibia, Nepal, Oman, and Uganda. Kazakshstan, Kirghizistan, and Uzbekistan will also each stage their own pavilion for the first time.
