2. What’s On in Venice

By Global Art Daily’s Editorial Board

Published on September 5th, 2022  

Biennale Arte 2022

The Milk of Dreams

Until November 27th, 2022

Of course this list of Global Art Daily’s must-see exhibitions in Venice cannot begin without La Biennale’s 59th International Art Exhibition. After a two-years break, the mother-of-all-biennials is back. Curated by Cecilia AlemaniThe Milk of Dreams takes its name 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 imagination” (Biennale Arte, 2022). It truly represents a kaleidoscopic vision on what art can be and what art is today, showcasing the most diverse pool of artists represented so far in the biennale. The works of over 200 artists from 58 countries, “including a majority of women and gender non-conforming artists” (Cecilia Alemani, 2022) can be seen in dialogue with historical artworks throughout the Biennale and the rest of events in the city.

Foundation In Between Art Film

Until November 17th, 2022

Foundation In Between Art Film opens its first institutional exhibition, Penumbra, with 8 commissioned video installations hosted in the Complesso dell’Ospedaletto, on the occasion of the Biennale Arte 2022. After partnering with other events in the past years, Penumbra, curated by Alessandro Rabottini and Leonardo Bigazzi, presents the works of Karimah Ashadu, Jonathas de Andrade, Aziz Hazara, He Xiangyu, Masbedo, James Richards, Emilija Škarnulytė, and Ana Vaz. The video installations touch upon different themes: from the legacies of extractive colonialism in Nigeria to the representation of marginalized communities in Brazil, passing through war, isolation, climate crisis, zoos, and much more. According to the exhibition’s pamphlet, the dark atmosphere of the location, set in an old church, somehow feels like a “hospital, rest home, and finally a cultural centre,” offering an incredible visual experience of spaces and times.

OGR Torino


Until November 27th, 2022

OGR Torino opens Alluvium curated by Samuele Piazza and featuring Dubai-based Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian. The exhibition includes part of the Alluvium series of painted terracotta plates on iron sculptures made by local craftsmen in the UAE. After many collaborations between the Italian foundation and the Iranian group, this exhibition brings their practice to the context of Venice in a dialogue between contemporary news and different artistic media. Dance, sculpture, and painting come together in the artists’ practice. In the review (addlink) of the exhibition, published as part of this new E-Issue, a comparison with the recent show Parthenogenesis at the NYUAD Art Gallery will offer a comprehensive view on the trio’s most recent artworks.

Ocean Space

The Soul Expanding Ocean #3 and #4

Until October 2nd, 2022

Ocean Space is a collaborative platform for Ocean Imagination and Ocean Action established and led by TBA21-Academy. On the occasion of the Biennale, two exhibitions have opened as part of the program The Soul Expanding Ocean curated by Chus Martínez with artists Dineo Seshee Bopape from South Africa and Diana Policarpo from Portugal. Bopape presents a three-channel video installation with a journey toward the Solomon Islands to then move to Mississippi and Jamaica before returning to South Africa. Policarpo exhibits a multimedia installation that refers to data gathering, sculpture and theatricality. Both works, although separated, investigate ways of connecting through art and research in the context of oceans, water, and lands.

4. Exhibition view of “The Soul Expanding Ocean #3: Dineo Seshee Bopape. Ocean! What if no change is your desperate mission?”, Ocean Space, Venice, 2022. Commissioned and produced by TBA21–Academy.

Gwanju Biennale Foundation

To where the flowers are blooming

Until November 27th, 2022

The Gwanju Biennale 5-18 Democratization Movement Special Exhibition, To where the flowers are blooming, reaches Venice at Spazio Berlendis after traveling to Seoul, Gwanju, Cologne, and Taipei. The exhibition commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Democratization movement. Through archive and art, it investigates questions of trauma in Korea’s history after the uprising of May 18, 1980, aiming towards the democratization of the country. The exhibition features archival materials on personal memories of the events and a selection of different artists: Bae Young-hwan, Hong Sung-dam, Ahn Chang Hong, Noh Suntag, Jim Meyerson, Park Hwayeon, Kim Chang-hun, Suh Dasom, Kader Attia, Ho Tzu Nyen, and Choi Sun. Having an exhibition organised by another Biennale in the context of the Venice Biennale reinforces the need for dialogue and the possibility of art to connect worlds and histories that may be forgotten or underrepresented. The show presents a powerful message of hope stemming from trauma and painful history, that art can mediate to the public.
