Exhibition: Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx
From 8th June to 29th September 2019, New York Botanical Garden, New York, United States

The New York Botanical Garden invites all to immerse in lush gardens and vibrant art in the exhibition “Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx”. He was a world-famous Brazilian landscape architect and he introduced modernist landscape architecture to Brazil.

“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.”
