Venice Biennale 2022, Names 213 Artists for its ‘Transhistorical’ 59th edition, titled “The Milk of Dreams”

The Venice Biennale is the world’s biggest art exhibition and has recently released its list of the 213 artists from 58 countries who will participate in its 59th edition. Due to run from April 23 to November 27 in Italy at the Giardini and the Arsenale, the upcoming Venice Biennale ‘22 will feature the most diverse lineup in the event’s history.

The majority-female 2022 edition, titled, ‘The Milk of Dreams’, is curated by Cecilia Alemani and organised by La Biennale di Venezia chaired by Robert Cicutto. The show’s title is in reference to a series of drawings that were later turned into a children’s book by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. In her personal statement, Alemani has shared three distinct areas of focus crucial to the show: “the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses; the relationship between individuals and technologies; the connection between bodies and the Earth”.

It was announced that this show will largely comprise of women and gender-nonconforming artists who seek to challenge “the figure of men as the centre of the universe’’. Shedding light on continental African talent who are germane to its surrealist context., International participants representing South Africa, Igshaan Adams and Bronwyn Katz, are confirmed to be featured. In addition, 3 African countries are set to make their first Biennale debut, this includes the Republic of Cameroon, Namibia, and Uganda.

Like many major art events, the Venice Biennale has faced challenges associated with the pandemic—this year’s edition was originally slated to take place in 2021 but was postponed a full year. When that delay was announced in 2020, Alemani made it clear that she did not want to curate what she called “the coronavirus biennial.” “Often, during times of crisis, there is a shift in artistic production, and if that happens, I want to try to capture it,” she told ARTnews at the time.

The Venice Biennale includes a handful of recognisable and well-established American and European artists, including Barbara Kruger, Cecilia Vicuña, and Paula Rego. While this is the case, the show’s focus is placed on artists who are young or under-represented and comes in conjunction with Alemani’s vision to feature even more figures from bygone times than previously done in the Biennale’s exhibition history. At the Presentation press conference announcing the artist list on 02 February ( Wednesday), she said her exhibition would include what she called “time capsules,” which will aspire to highlight themes and artists from the early 20th century.

Alemani called her Biennale “a transhistoric exhibition, creating a dialogue between the present and past and creating a dialogue between stories of exclusion.” Included in those capsules will be loans from various collectors and institutions, including Remedios Varo’s Armónia (Autorettrato Surgente), 1956, which was bought by Eduardo F. Costantini for a record-breaking $6.19 million in 2020. Across the show, and especially in the “capsules,” there will be an emphasis on Surrealism by women and gender-nonconforming artists. In his personal statement, Roberto Cicutto affirms Cecilia Alemani’s exhibition to be what, ”imagines new harmonies, hitherto unthinkable cohabitations and surprising solutions, precisely because they distance themselves from anthropocentrism”.

“The exhibition is rooted in posthuman thought,” Alemani said. “Many contemporary artists are imagining a posthuman condition challenging the presumed Western condition using the white man as a measure of all things. They propose difference alliances, fantastic bodies. This is why the exhibition includes a large amount of female and gender-nonconforming artists.”
