Donald Judd
Selected prints

April 1 - May 1, 2010

Selected prints
Donald Judd (1928 - 1994) was a seminal Minimalist sculptor, known for his total commitment to formal exploration, as well as his intensity of color and the sensuousness of his surfaces. Though originally a painter, Judd made extremely little two-dimensional work. This exhibition of prints from the 1960s offers an extremely rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of this lesser-known aspect of his practice. Though these prints were made at the height of Judd’s career, Judd’s interest in printmaking began in the mid 1950s, and extended throughout his career, including a brief collaboration with his father, Roy, in the early 1960s. This exhibition is on view in conjunction with the Judd Symposium, taking place in Portland, OR on Sunday, April 25, 2010.

Born in Excelsior Springs, MO, in 1928, Donald Judd received a BS in Philosophy from Columbia University in 1953, while simultaneously attending classes at the Art Students League. In 1965, he published his most important and radical piece of writing “Specific Objects,” which advocates for the permanent installation of artist’s works in carefully selected environments. Judd’s importance as a sculptor is nearly unparalleled, and since his first career retrospective at the Whitney Museum in 1968, his work has been exhibited at countless major institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY), the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris, France), and the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid, Spain), among many others. After moving to Marfa, TX in 1972, Judd created the Chinati Foundation, a contemporary art museum based upon his commitment to a unified experience linking art, architecture, and the surrounding natural environment. Currently, the Judd foundation, based in Marfa, as well as New York, NY, maintains, preserves and presents Judd’s work, in addition to maintaining the artist’s living and working spaces. Judd died in New York, NY in 1994.
