Text by Alex Coles and Donald Judd
This fully illustrated catalogue was published on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, England, in 2010 (which traveled to the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, in 2011). The exhibition features Judd’s furniture and related drawings, including chairs, beds, shelves, desks, and tables made from solid wood, metal, and ply. Amongst the works on view are a number of prototypes, including early examples the artist constructed himself, such as Bookshelves (1968) and Children’s Desk (1977), which are rarely shown outside of Judd’s adopted home of Marfa, Texas. This bilingual catalogue (English and German) also includes texts by the artist and design critic Alex Coles.
