The work of Donald Judd (1928-1994), one of the most significant American artists of the post-war period, has come to define what has been referred to as Minimalist art—a label to which the artist strongly objected on the grounds of its generality. The unaffected, straightforward quality of Judd’s work demonstrates his strong interest in color, form, material, and space.
Judd’s work has been exhibited internationally since the 1960s and is included in numerous museum collections. Permanent installations of the artist’s work can be found at Judd Foundation spaces in New York City, at 101 Spring Street, and Marfa, Texas, along with the neighboring Chinati Foundation. The Judd ranch house, Casa Morales, is available for viewing by special appointment.
Judd Foundation (Rainer Judd and Flavin Judd, Co-Presidents) is exclusively represented by David Zwirner. In 2011 in New York, the gallery exhibited a selection of works by the artist drawn from his seminal 1989 exhibition held at the Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany, and in 2013 a major installation by Judd was included in Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, the inaugural exhibition at David Zwirner’s 20th Street location in New York. Also in 2013, the gallery presented an exhibition of works by Judd at its Mayfair location, the first significant exhibition of Judd’s work in the U.K. since his 2004 retrospective at Tate Modern.
