The first retrospective in 30 years on American maverick Donald Judd’s minimalist sculpture, architecture and furniture

Published to accompany the first US retrospective exhibition of Donald Judd’s sculpture in more than 30 years, Judd explores the work of a landmark artist who, over the course of his career, developed a material and formal vocabulary that transformed the field of modern sculpture.

Donald Judd was among a generation of artists in the 1960s who sought to entirely do away with illusion, narrative and metaphorical content. He turned to three dimensions as well as industrial working methods and materials in order to investigate “real space,” by his definition. Judd surveys the evolution of the artist’s work, beginning with his paintings, reliefs and handmade objects from the early 1960s; through the years in which he built an iconic vocabulary of works in three dimensions, including hollow boxes, stacks and progressions made with metals and plastics by commercial fabricators; and continuing through his extensive engagement with color during the last decade of his life.

This richly illustrated catalog takes a close look at Judd’s achievements, and, using newly available archival materials at the Judd Foundation and elsewhere, expands scholarly perspectives on his work. The essays address subjects such as his early beginnings in painting, the fabrication of his sculptures, his site-specific pieces and his work in design and architecture.

Donald Judd (1928–94) began his professional career working as a painter while studying art history and writing art criticism. One of the foremost sculptors of our time, Judd refused this designation and other attempts to label his art: his revolutionary approach to form, materials, working methods and display went beyond the set of existing terms in midcentury New York. His work, in turn, changed the language of modern sculpture.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Artforum

Aria Dean

There couldn’t be a better time to revisit an artist who doggedly confronted form, presence, and politics, both on the page and in ‘real space.

Wall Street Journal

Peter Saenger

When Judd’s works are displayed en masse and given enough space, Ms. Temkin argues, it’s possible to see the visual power and the extraordinary variety of his work...

New York Magazine: Vulture

Jerry Saltz

Judd’s minimalism is the ubiquitous dark design energy of everyday modern life. Always there, even if you never consciously recognize it.

ARTnews

Editors at ARTnews

That aesthetic synergy between the work of Judd, who died in 1994, and MoMA brings a certain piquancy to the museum’s current Judd retrospective, the first anywhere in more than 30 years. The museum has changed—there have been three renovations and expansions since the ’70s—and perhaps so, too, has our understanding of Judd’s steely, boxy objects.

Artsy

Alina Cohen

While there’s admirable integrity in Judd’s detailed specifications regarding color, material, process, and exhibition methods, there’s also a supreme fussiness and self-importance that touches everything the man ever made. The work wants to argue with whatever qualms you might have about it, and you get the feeling that the work would probably win.

Architectural Digest

Madeline Luckel

There are endless details for furniture historians and fans alike to eagerly seek out.

New York Times

Holland Cotter

[Judd's] art, once thought to be too severe to be beautiful, can now be seen to offer pleasures, visual and conceptual, that any audience with open eyes can relate too...

Wall Street Journal

Lance Esplund

an ode to material and spatial transformation

Hyperallergic

John Yau

Judd was committed to abstraction and democracy. His work praises human labor and industrial craftsmanship.

Town & Country

Olivia Hosken

A much needed exhalation.

New Yorker

Peter Schjeldahl

Works by Judd are almost routinely beautiful, but coldly and even imperiously so, as if their quality were none of your business.

MoMA's spectacular catalog brings 'Judd' to life

MoMA's spectacular catalog brings 'Judd' to life

"Untitled" (1991) is reproduced from Judd, published to accompany the first US retrospective of Donald Judd’s sculpture in more than 30 years, on temporary hiatus at MoMA. One of Judd's late works produced in Switzerland—a body of work described by one of Judd's longtime assistants, Jamie Dearing, as "kind of shocking, kind of like when Dylan started playing electric guitar," it is one of 350 color illustrations in a catalog that is as scholarly as it is visually illuminating. "There couldn’t be a better time to revisit an artist who doggedly confronted form, presence, and politics, Aria Dean writes in Artforum, "both on the page and in 'real space.'" continue to blog

The next best thing to seeing 'Judd' at MoMA is reading 'Judd' from MoMA

"Untitled" (1963) is reproduced from Judd, published to accompany the first major retrospective of the artist's work in thirty years, on temporary hiatus now at MoMA. For anyone who can't wait for the show to reopen—as well as anyone who has or ever will see it—this pitch-perfect catalogue is a superb synthesis of the work and thinking of the "last great revolutionary of modern art," in the words of The New Yorker's Peter Schjeldahl. Featuring essays by Ann Temkin, Erica Cooke, Tamar Margalit, Christine Mehring, James Meyer, Annie Ochmanek, Yasmil Raymond and Jeffrey Weiss, alongside 350 color images, this will be the most important and comprehensive book on Judd's work for decades to come. continue to blog
