Talking about The Milk of Dreams

Meetings on Art, from Leonora Carrington to the posthuman
di Redazione VeNews

The meetings take Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington – whose l work inspired the title and themes of the 59th International Art Exhibition – as a point of departure to expand on the thematic threads raised throughout The Milk of Dreams.

Running from June 7th to June 11th, 2022, a series of conversations, keynote lectures, and film screenings will bring together thirty-six artists, scholars, curators, thinkers, and writers from various fields to discuss the work by Carrington and other Surrealist women artists in relation to topics such as metamorphosis, the undoing 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.

Speakers include Susan Aberth, Sophia Al-Maria, Tere Arcq, Tomaso Binga, Matthew Biro, Rosi Braidotti, Giulia Cenci, Susanne Christensen, Jeffrey Deitch, Elisa Giardina Papa, Andrea Giunta, Jack Halberstam, Saidiya Hartman, Jennifer Higgie, Tishan Hsu, Yuk Hui, Jacqueline Humphries, Candice Lin, Canirisia Lubrin, Sebastiano Maffettone, Alyce Mahon, Joanna Moorhead, Gloria Orenstein, Alexandra Pirici, Clarissa Ricci, Christina Sharpe, Marianna Simnett, Adrien Sina, Ánde Somby, Gražina Subelytė, Emma Talbot, Wu Tsang, Angela Vettese, Rinaldo Walcott, Marina Warner, and Anna Watz.
