Donald Judd: Judd
A unique exhibition on Donald Judd's entire artistic career
Donald Judd, one of the foremost sculptors of our time, presents his solo show “Judd” running at MoMA, New York, from March 1 to July 11, 2020. This exhibition explores the artist’s remarkable vision on art, his revolutionary approach to form, materials, and working methods, which went beyond the set of existing terms in mid-century New York. His work changed the language of modern sculpture, bringing together sculpture, painting, and drawing.
Beginning his professional career working as a painter, by the mid-1960s, Judd commenced his lifelong practice of using industrial materials, such as aluminum, steel, and Plexiglass and delegating the production of his work to local metal shops. With the help of these specialised fabricators, he developed a signature vocabulary of hollow, rectilinear volumes, often arranged in series. In the following years, “boxes,” “stacks,” and “progressions” continued as Judd’s principal framework to introduce different combinations of color and surface.
“Judd” surveys the complete evolution of the artist’s career, culminating in the last decade of his life, when Judd intensified his work with color and continued to lay new ground for what ensuing generations would come to define as sculpture.
