Please join the @juddfoundation tonight from 6:00-8:00pm for the opening of Donald Judd: Paintings 1960-1961, nine works by the artist on the ground floor of 101 Spring Street in New York.
A largely understudied part of his oeuvre, his paintings from the early 1960s incorporate a series of stylistic transitions that reflect his interests and development as an artist. The paintings make use of repeating forms, a reduced color palette, found objects, and wax and sand to build up the canvas, plywood, or Masonite surfaces. The untitled works in the exhibition reflect Judd’s experiments with a variety of techniques and the possibilities for creating non-illusionistic space in two dimensions in which he incorporated found objects into the support of the paintings and added materials including wax and sand to create a definite surface.
Curated by Flavin Judd, Artistic Director of Judd Foundation, the exhibition will be on view from September 22 through December 8, 2018.
Donald Judd: Paintings 1960-1961 is made possible with support from Catherine Lagrange.
