Birkbeck School of Arts presents:

Plantae Amazonicae: art, ethnobotany and biocultural artefacts

What do art and botany tell us about the Amazon? Artist Lindsay Sekulowicz’s latest exhibition is the culmination of a decade of work with botanists at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and a wider research team in the UK and Brazil who are examining the collections of 19th century botanist and explorer Richard Spruce. Along with the artist, panellists Antje Southern (Royal Drawing School), William Milliken (Royal Botanic Gardens Kew) and Luciana Martins (Birkbeck) will tell us about the encounter between academics, artists and scientists.
