> DESCRIPTION

Brasilia, a group exhibition of vintage photographs celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the capital of Brazil, will be on view at 1500 Gallery September 9-November 27, 2010.  Curated by Brazilian photographer Murillo Meirelles, the exhibition will include images that show Brasilia being planned, constructed and inaugurated from 1958-1960. There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, September 15 from 6-8 pm. 1500 Gallery is located at 511 W 25th St. #607, New York, NY.

A city planned and built from scratch in the very center of the country, Brasilia replaced Rio de Janeiro as the capital of Brazil in 1960.  The architectural, figurative and photojournalistic images in the Brasilia exhibition highlight the idealism of Juscelino Kubitschek’s socialist government and its team of visionary urban planners, architects and landscape designers including Lucio Costa, Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx.  The eight images in the exhibition include a pictures of workers cutting steel and laying beams, an aerial view of the Esplanade under construction, and several images of the National Congress.

About 1500 Gallery

Alexandre Bueno de Moraes and Andrew S. Klug founded 1500 Gallery in 2010.  The gallery specializes in Brazilian photography and is the first gallery in the world with this explicit focus.  1500 interprets the notion of “Brazilian photography” to comprise photography made by Brazilian photographers, as well as images bearing a conceptual or thematic relationship to Brazil.  1500 represents the work of 17 artists, both emerging and established: 6 of 1500’s photographers are represented in the Sao Paulo Museum of Art’s Collection of Photography.  1500’s collection of images includes both contemporary and vintage photography.
