Image for the 59th International Art Exhibition

The 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, titled The Milk of Dreams, opens this week at the Giardini and the Arsenale. Curated by Cecilia Alemani, this year’s Biennale includes works by LGDR artists Magdalene A.N. Odundo DBE, Carol Rama, and Niki de Saint Phalle.

Taking its title from an illustrated book by Surrealist painter Leonora Carrington, The Milk of Dreams is the first main exhibition in the Biennale’s 127-year history to focus principally upon the women and gender non-conforming artists.
