Oct. 21, 2022 - Feb. 20, 2023—The California Science Center proudly presents the North American premiere of Amazônia, the critically acclaimed exhibition featuring more than 200 photographs by world-renowned Brazilian photojournalist Sebastião Salgado, including portraits of the Amazon's indigenous peoples and large-scale rich landscapes. Enhance your experience seeing Amazon Adventure 3D, an immersive IMAX movie that transports viewers to the lush Amazon rainforest to meet some of the region's captivating animals on our 7-story screen.
Discover stunning portraits of the Amazon's indigenous leaders and communities, dramatic landscapes taken from intrepid riverboat expeditions, and sweeping aerial shots of immense waterfalls and stormy skies. Accompanied by an immersive forest soundscape and original music composed by French musician Jean-Michel Jarre, Salgado's breathtaking black-and-white photographs will draw viewers into the planet's largest rainforest and its hidden worlds. Lélia Wanick Salgado's curatorship and amazing scenography immerse us in the forest, among its inhabitants. Heralded by The Guardian as what "may be the most urgent exhibition of the year," Amazônia will enrich our understanding of life in the Amazon, the ongoing threats from the outside world, and the vital role of sustainable development and conservation to ensure its survival for generations to come.
