The crowds were packed into the Central Pavilion of the Venice Biennale in the Giardini yesterday, where the 2022 Venice Biennale’s main show, “The Milk of Dreams,” continued from the Arsenale across town.
What do I need to tell you about them, for context? Not much. As I said yesterday about the Arsenale section, it is a particularly visual show. It’s (relatively) sparing in its deployment of video. As for text-based and research works, it only really gets clotted in the mini-galleries dedicated to surveys of women working with the occult and magic (“The Witch’s Cradle”) and text and automatism (“Corps Orbite.”) But these last are, in truth, highlights, so it’s worth it to wait your turn examining their trove of interesting artifacts and anecdotes.
For a sense of what to expect, see the pictures below.
