Kiley Conversation with Charles Birnbaum and Raymond Jungles on 1.18.24

ABC Stone is hosting the critically acclaimed photographic exhibition The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley, organized and curated by The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF). Kiley (1912-2004) was one of the nation’s most important postwar landscape architects, and the exhibition features dozens of newly commissioned photographs of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 designs including: the Miller House and Garden, Columbus, IN; the Art Institute of Chicago South Garden, Chicago, IL; and one of his final residential projects, Patterns, a garden for Gov. & Mrs. Pierre S. “Pete” du Pont IV in Delaware. The exhibition also includes recently commissioned photographs of the Ford Foundation Atrium, the widely hailed rehabilitation of which was overseen by the landscape architect Raymond Jungles. The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley will be on view at The Exhibition Space @ ABC Stone (189 Banker Street Brooklyn, N.Y. 11222), January 18 – April 30, 2024. The exhibition is free and open by appointment (Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM ET). Please contact Lyndsey Tyler to schedule a tour lyndsey@abcworldwidestone.com.

On the evening of January 18th,  an opening reception for the exhibition was hosted at ABC Stone, which included a conversation between the exhibition’s co-curator, Charles A. Birnbaum, TCLF’s President and CEO, and Raymond Jungles. Using Jungles’ work at the Ford Foundation Atrium as a case study, the two discussed the history and design of Kiley’s robust body of work, the challenges surrounding being a steward of his work and the ongoing efforts to honor Kiley’s legacy.
