Asawa Featured in the Return of the Venice Biennale

Titled The Milk Of Dreams, after a Leonora Carrington book, The 59th Biennale Arte opens in Venice, featuring more than 200 artists from 58 countries. Asawa's work is featured in a series of time capsules, which "establish dialogues and rhymes across generations."

The Milk of Dreams: Biennale Arte 2022

The Milk of Dreams takes its title from a book by Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) in which the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination. It is a world where everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else. The Exhibition The Milk of Dreams takes Leonora Carrington’s otherworldly creatures, along with other figures of transformation, as companions on an imaginary journey through the metamorphoses of bodies and definitions of the human.
