Plant Cure/Brooklyn Botanic Garden


Through March 27, 2022
Conservatory Gallery

Art and science meet in this exhibit that explores the healing properties of plants through the eyes of five contemporary artists. Plant Cure/Brooklyn Botanic Garden features artwork from Desirée Alvarez, Agnes Murray, Maddy Rosenberg, Amanda Thackray, and James Walsh, who during their six months as visual artists-in-residence at the Garden found inspiration in its archival and living collection.

The exhibit highlights a selection of the artists’ research as well as materials from the Garden’s collection. This project was organized and curated by Maddy Rosenberg of CENTRAL BOOKING, a nontraditional gallery that explores the expanse of book art in dialogue with the convergence of art and science.
