Donald Judd : Writings 1958-1993
This volume is the most comprehensive collection of the artist's writings assembled to date. This timely publication includes Judd's best-known essays organised chronologically with little-known texts previously published in limited editions. It also includes unpublished college essays and hundreds of never-before-seen handwritten notes, a critical but unknown part of Judd's writing practice.Donald Judd (1928-1994) remains one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. 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.
