Titled “The Milk of Dreams,” the event’s fifty-ninth iteration, to take place April 23–November 27, will elevate the work of women and gender-nonconforming artists and “challenge the figure of man as the center of the universe,” according to the event’s director, New York–based curator Cecilia Alemani. Additionally, it will focus on the relationships among humans, various life-forms, and technology.
