Report from Brazil - 4

Inhotim Contemporary Art and Botanical garden.

Inhotim is an amazing art experience. You can drive north from Sao Paulo or Rio. The latter is extremely beautiful. But the roads are not great when you get close to Belo Horizonte, so rent a decent car. At Inhotim they have an extraordinary collection, magnificent garden and the architecture is breathtaking. You find more info here and more images here.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the collection is the that they have created a special building for the 5 Cosmococa installations by Hélio Oiticica and Neville D’Almeida. In one you can go for a swim a pool while you listen to a piece by John Cage.
