Donald Judd, Artworks: 1970–1994
David Zwirner is pleased to announce Artworks: 1970–1994, curated by Flavin Judd, artistic director of Judd Foundation, on view across all three of the gallery’s West 19th Street locations in New York. Presented concurrently with The Museum of Modern Art’s full-scale retrospective, which opens in New York in March, this exhibition will complement the museum’s presentation by focusing on a selection of works within Judd’s oeuvre. Rigorously experimental, Judd would often challenge his own axioms—altering his materials, sequencing, and formats in pursuit of his notion of the “specific object.” Exceptional, but in line with Judd’s thinking about material, proportion, and color, the included works range from expansive installations to self-contained single units, thus yielding valuable new insight into Judd’s process and his masterful approach to form. As the artist himself described it in 1987, “I’m very meticulous about the logic of my pieces. But you should only consider logic up to a certain point, because, after all, all the interesting stuff is something else.”
On the occasion of the exhibition, an extensive catalogue featuring new texts on the artist is forthcoming from David Zwirner Books.
