The {Disputed} Glories of the High Victorian Garden 
Thursday, February 9
English Speaking Union, 144 East 39th Street
6:30 p.m.
New horticultural imports, exciting technological innovations, controversies over color theory, patterns and lay-out all characterize this period in the world of English gardens.  Owners and their head gardeners looked to former historical styles (especially Italian) while incorporating current Victorian pursuits and fashions.
Majda Salvesen, garden history author and adjunct lecturer in the NYU Department of Art and Architecture History and Urban Studies, will examine these new variants and their influence on 21st century garden design.

DAH Adjunct Professor Brinda Kumar has helped to organize a Met Breuer exhibition

28 Mar

From Professor Kumar:

I was very happy to see that Prof. Ajay Sinha had circulated information on the Nasreen Mohamedi exhibition back in January. I am pleased to let you know that the exhibition (which I have had the pleasure of working on) opens to the public tomorrow on March 18, and will be on view at The Met Breuer (the Met’s newest space located on 5th Ave and 75th St, New York – former home of the Whitney Museum). It will be on view till June 5, 2016, and I hope that many in the ACSAA community might be able to see it.

As newly designed landscapes became places to visit in the 18th century — whether the owner was in residence or not — their innovative style became the talk of the town (and country), and the subject of essays, poetry and engravings. This talk explores the rich variety of moods produced by the creation of lakes and the placement of sculpture, temples and other fabriques within these new environments.
