Plant Cure/Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Exhibits

Tuesday, March 3 to Sunday, November 15, 2020
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.
