Rio de Janeiro was replaced as the capital of Brazil in 1960 by Brasilia, a city planned out and built from scratch for this purpose. To celebrate the city's 50th anniversary, an exhibition of vintage photos showing its development will take place this fall. "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."
Brasilia opens September 9 at the 1500 Gallery in New York and runs through November 27, 2010.
