This comprehensive collection of Donald Judd's writings includes previously unpublished writings and hundreds of notes

Donald Judd: Writings, copublished by Judd Foundation and David Zwirner Books, is the most comprehensive collection of the artist's writings assembled to date. This timely publication includes Judd’s best-known essays organized chronologically with little-known texts previously published in limited editions. This new collection also includes unpublished college essays and hundreds of never-before-seen handwritten notes, a critical but unknown part of Judd’s writing practice.

Judd’s earliest published writing, consisting largely of reviews for hire, defined the terms of art criticism in the 1960s, but his essays as a graduate student at Columbia, published here for the first time, contain the seeds of his later writing, and allow readers to trace the development of his critical style. The writings that followed Judd’s early reviews are no less significant art-historically, but have been relegated to smaller publications and have remained largely unavailable until now.

The largest addition of newly available material is Judd’s unpublished notes--transcribed from his handwritten accounts of and reactions to subjects ranging from the politics of his time, to the literary texts he admired most, from complaints about pluralism in art to his admiration for Giambattista Vico, and through him, Lucretius. In these intimate reflections we see Judd’s thinking at its least mediated--a mind continuing to grapple with questions of its moment, demonstrating the intensity of thought that continues to make Judd such a formidable presence in contemporary art.

Donald Judd (1928–94) remains one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, whose radical ideas and work continue to provoke and influence the fields of art, architecture and design. Born in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, and after having served in the US Army, Judd attended the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, and Columbia University, New York, where he received a BS in Philosophy, cum laude, in 1953. Studying at the Art Students League, Judd began his artistic career as a painter and transitioned to three-dimensional work in the early 1960s. Throughout his lifetime, in his writings and his work, he advocated for the importance of art and the artist’s role in society. His work has been exhibited internationally since the 1960s and is included in numerous museum collections. A major retrospective of the artist's work is forthcoming at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times

Roberta Smith

Brick-size, over 1,000 pages long, it reflects the immense range of his interest in art, history and politics, and his disgruntlement with the state of the world...in all, a stimulating portrait of this intractable artist and thinker.

Hyperallergic

Thanks to the force of Judd’s critical intelligence, this [book] is ...by many measures as heavy as any other written by any of his contemporaries.

Hyperallergic

Richard Kostelanetz

...they contain art world truths that many suspect, but are not commonly admitted. For these nuggets alone, younger artists would learn much from this book.

Donald Judd: Writings

Donald Judd: WritingsFrom the late 50s to the mid-70s, Donald Judd's impassioned, sometimes scathing art writing appeared in numerous "trade" magazines, including Arts, Arts Magazine and Art International. Some of the most influential artist writings of the twentieth century, these essays were gathered, in 1975, in the seminal book, Donald Judd: Complete Writings 1959–1975, appropriately subtitled, "Gallery Reviews, Book Reviews, Articles, Letters to the Editor, Reports, Statements, Complaints." Now there is a new, must-have 1,056-page edition. Featuring little-known texts previously published in limited editions, unpublished college essays, and hundreds of never-before-seen handwritten notes, in addition to Judd's best-known essays, it is available at our store at Frieze New York!
