“Modern Architecture and Landscape Design in Brazil”
Vera Beatriz Siqueira, State University of Rio de Janeiro

From selected moments of the modern architectural and landscape design experience in Brazil, this lecture reflects on the formation of the canon of what came to be known as the Brazilian Style or Modern Tropical Garden. It will cover a temporal arch from the 1920s to the 1970s and show iconic works in different parts of Brazil, including São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Recife, and Brasilia.

This is a prerecorded lecture that will be publicly available starting on May 27.
Mundos da arte no Brasil / Art Worlds of Brazil is a series of pre-recorded lectures that will be posted on the Clark Art Institute and the CIHA websites once a month, beginning in September 2020 and running through June 2021. Each month a researcher from Brazil will discuss an aspect of the Brazilian art world, spanning museums, galleries, collectives, alternative circuits, patrimony, and architecture in which they specialize.

This series is part of a pre-congress for the 35th CIHA World Congress: “Motion: Migrations,” to be held in São Paulo in August 2021 (postponed from September 2020 due to COVID-19). This webinar series aims at making the art environments of Brazil more familiar to congress participants and to a wider public.

Convened by Claudia Mattos Avolese, University of Campinas, and the Research and Academic Program of the Clark Art Institute.
