In pictures: for the first time female artists dominate the Venice Biennale

For the first time in its 127-year history, the Venice Biennale – the world’s oldest and most important fair for contemporary art – features a majority of female and gender-balanced artists.

Curatorially directed by Cecilia Alemani, the event shines a spotlight on artists who have long been overlooked despite prolific careers, while exploring issues such as gender norms, colonialism and climate change.

Ms Alemani’s main show, titled The Milk Of Dreams, opens alongside 80 national pavilions after a year-long pandemic delay.

The Biennale runs until November 27th.
