Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist

May 6 – September 18 │ New York

This exhibition presents over 100 works by multi-disciplinary artist Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994), one of the most acclaimed landscape architects of the 20th century.

This is the first comprehensive exhibition in the United States dedicated to Roberto Burle-Marx, one of the most prominent artistic figures of 20th century Brazil. The son of a German Jewish father and a Brazilian Catholic mother, Burle-Marx embraced modernism in the early 1930s and revolutionized landscape design by using abstraction as his guiding principle.

Demonstrating the breadth of his rich and prolific oeuvre, the exhibition features over 100 works, including garden plans, paintings, sculpture, theater designs, jewelry, and a magnificent tapestry — most of which have never been seen in the United States. Also invited to display works alongside are a group of international contemporary artists who have been inspired by Burle-Marx including Juan Araujo, Paloma Bosquê, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Luisa Lambri, Arto Lindsay, Nick Mauss, and Beatriz Milhazes.
