David Zwirner announces an exhibition of works by Donald Judd [masked]), so we're taking the opportunity to see and discuss the relevance of his work today.
This is the first gallery presentation of this seminal artist in London in nearly fifteen years and the first significant exhibition of Judd’s work in the U.K. since his 2004 retrospective at Tate Modern, London. From the early 1960s up until the time of his death, Judd developed a rigorous visual vocabulary that sought clear and definite objects as its primary mode of articulation. Together, the works in this exhibition present an overview of many of Judd’s signature forms and offer insight into his singular commitment to material, color, and proportion.
One of the most significant American artists of the postwar period, Judd’s oeuvre has come to define what has been referred to as Minimalist art — a label to which the artist strongly objected on the grounds of its generality.
David Zwirner gallery closes at 6pm so I've scheduled the visit for 5pm. Hope you can join me and see what we can make of Judd's art together.
