Venice Biennale, Van Gogh’s self-portraits, Dalí and Freud

This week, we talk to Cecilia Alemani, the artistic director of the Venice Biennale for art, which opens in April, about her show, The Milk of Dreams. She discusses the story by the Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington that gives the Biennale its title, the “time capsules” of historic art that punctuate the exhibition, the thematic structure, and the fact that it is the first Venice Biennale featuring a majority of women artists. For this episode’s Work of the Week, Martin Bailey visits the Courtauld Gallery, where 15 of Vincent van Gogh’s self-portrait paintings have been gathered for a once-in-a-generation show. He talks to the curator Karen Serres about Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear (1889). And at the Belvedere in Vienna, a new exhibition explores the relationship between Salvador Dalí and Sigmund Freud—Ben Luke talks to Stephanie Auer from the museum about Dalí’s obsession with the father of psychoanalysis, his attempts to meet Freud in Vienna, and what happened when they finally encountered each other in London.

Hosted on Acast. See for more information.
