59. Art Biennale Finissage

Some of the best installations at this year's Venice Art Biennale
di Marisa Santin

Five of each. Here is our selection of the best artists, national participations and collateral events in Cecilia Alemani’s kaleidoscopic Milk of Dreams.

Cecilia Alemani’s Milk of Dreams has allowed us to explore other universes and compare different visions, opening up to the world of Magic, embracing surrealist themes, and maintaining at the same time a critical and sharp gaze on our present. Below are the installations that we believe should not be missed out.
