  • Hugh Livingston — Dumbarton Oaks
    Dr Livingston s project is the fourth in a series of occasional installations of contemporary art at Dumbarton Oaks intended to provide unexpected experiences of the institution s historic gardens The project was jointly organized by the garden staff with the Garden and Landscape Studies program Visitors who have difficulties with steep steps can approach the site from below via Melisande s Allée Experience the installation on video Read the review in The American Society of Landscape Architect s blog The Dirt 5 20 14 String Quartet and 22 Intermissions Please Be Seated 2015 Photo courtesy Anatole Tchikine Hugh Livingston s string quartet presents the visitor with two unusual experiences First the feeling of the instrument s fundamental resonances radiating through the chair into the body Second the true nature of the counterpoint between intertwined individual voices of a string quartet By placing the listener at the center of this interchange rather than at the distance typical of a concert hall a new insight is offered into the essence of chamber composition The voices of the quartet are in fact all cello recorded by the composer Garden designer Beatrix Farrand wrote that with the sound of falling water and wood thrush peace comes dropping slow to the garden at Dumbarton Oaks She was referencing The Lake Isle of Innisfree in which William Butler Yeats writes And I shall have some peace there for peace comes dropping slow Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings While the energy of the composition changes from moment to moment many of the 23 sections reference either the sound of the wood thrush or the feeling of peace descending on the garden About the Artist Hugh Livingston graduated cum laude in music from Yale has an MFA in contemporary music

  • Contemporary Art Installation Program — Dumbarton Oaks
    missions of Dumbarton Oaks Dumbarton Oaks was designed as private garden but became part of educational institution when its patrons Mildred Barnes and Robert Woods Bliss donated the house collections and gardens to Harvard University in 1940 The gardens principal designer Beatrix Farrand realized this would have profound impacts as detailed in a prescient report she wrote to the administrative board of the newly established Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in 1941 The transfer of ownership from an intimately personal control to a necessarily more impersonal but an enduring educational institution must alter the point of view from which the gardens are considered she wrote Paramount in this shift from personal to institutional is the emergence of an educational mission It is not necessary to emphasize that the first duty of an educational institution is to use its resources for the benefit of its students As a research rather than a teaching facility Dumbarton Oaks supports scholars rather than students but the point is the same the institution now serves an academic community not individuals Installations are a way of temporarily amplifying or augmenting features and spaces of the gardens to reinforce their role as a place of creative exploration and intellectual inquiry Patrick Dougherty s Easy Rider in winter 2011 Photo courtesy A Tchikine The installations are meant to respond to the qualities and characteristics of the gardens but to different degrees Dumbarton Oaks has multiple constituencies institutional local and international as such our approach has been to address different audiences with disparate projects some more site specific than others some more popular than others Sometimes it takes a fresh set of eyes to enable us to look anew at that which we have become inured to seeing or to reconsider things about which we think we know
