DAVID ZWIRNER BOOKS

Donald Judd: Cor-ten

Text by Claudia Jolles, Flavin Judd, Ellie Meyer

A suite of minimalist Donald Judd's key works from the 1980s in one extraordinary material: Cor-ten steel

The work of Donald Judd (1928–94), one of the most significant American artists of the postwar period, has come to define Minimalist art, a label to which the artist strongly objected. Wanting to create works that could assume a direct material and physical presence without recourse to grand philosophical statements, Judd eschewed classical ideals of representational sculpture and created works that relied on clear, definite objects. Donald Judd: Cor-ten represents the first-ever focused examination of Judd’s works in Cor-ten steel, which he began to produce in earnest in 1989 and would continue to elaborate on until his death in 1994. Cor-ten is an alloy that makes steel more resistant to corrosion, and eliminates the need for paint. With its distinctive red-brown patina, Cor-ten afforded Judd a new medium for exploring the relationship between surface and volume, as well as color and form. Prior to 1989, Judd executed a handful of works in Cor-ten primarily as outdoor commissions or site-specific works. Published on the occasion of the 2015 exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, and and designed in close collaboration with Flavin Judd and Judd Foundation,Donald Judd: Cor-ten sheds new light on a body of work that represents the culmination of three decades of Judd’s output.

Donald Judd (1928–1994) 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 will be held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in October 2017.
