With Rio+20 on the horizon, ‘green’ is clearly the theme across the city, and the CCBB follows suit with its latest exhibition celebrating Brazil’s, and indeed the world’s, greenest region, the Amazon. With over 300 artworks and artifacts uniting the work of over 76 artists from around the globe, Amazônia, Cycles of Modernity tells the story of the Amazon Region from the Era of Enlightenment, through the Rubber Age and to Modernity, via photography, painting, sculpture and film.

Brazil is represented through contemporary pieces by Adriana Varejão and Cildo Meireles, and through the collaborative efforts of the Museu Goeldi and the Museu do Índio, the exhibition is rounded off with a collection of artifacts from the indigenous Amazonian tribes including jewellery, masks, headdresses and musical instruments.
