Brazilian Modern is a massive new exhibition coming to the New York Botanical Garden this summer that celebrates and displays the living art of famous Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx.
Roberto Burle Marx (1909–94) was a force of nature in Brazil—through his bold landscapes, vibrant art, and passionate commitment to plant conservation. His powerful modernist vision produced thousands of gardens and landscapes, including the famous curving mosaic walkways at Copacabana Beach in Rio and the beautiful rooftop garden at Banco Safra in São Paulo. Feel his artistic energy and love of plants during our Garden-wide exhibition of lush gardens; paintings, drawings, and textiles; and the sights and sounds of Brazil that inspired his life and work.
The exhibition is open from Saturday, June 8th through Sunday, September 29th. Check out the exhibition page for more info.
