From Tuesday 7 to Saturday 11 June at the Piccolo Arsenale Theater. LIVE STREAMING: June 7, 10 am – 12 pm / 5 pm – 7 pm.
The 2022 Biennale Arte Meetings on Art program is inspired by the Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) – whose literary and artistic work inspired the title and themes of the 59th International Art Exhibition – to broaden the themes raised by the exhibition The milk of dreams: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses; the relationship between individuals and technologies; the connection between bodies and the Earth.
From 7-11 June 2022, a series of conversations, lectures and film screenings will bring together thirty-five female artists, scholars, curators, thinkers and writers from various fields of interest to discuss the work of Carrington and other Surrealist artists in relation to topics such as metamorphosis, the failure of binary gender forms, the occult, alchemy, magic and indigenous epistemologies; the posthuman turn; our relationship with the Earth and with technologies; the practice of fabulation and feminist approaches to curating.
