New York, NY 



James Rosenquist
May 13 - August 6, 2016
Thursdays - Saturdays 1:00 - 5:30pm
101 Spring Street
New York, NY 10012

Judd Foundation is pleased to present James Rosenquist, five works curated by Flavin Judd, at 101 Spring Street in New York. The third in a series to highlight the interrelated aspects of Donald Judd’s work and thinking, the ground floor installation will feature art with Judd Furniture, select writings from the Donald Judd Archives, and selections from the Donald Judd Library in Marfa, Texas.

Judd regarded the work of Rosenquist, writing in a 1964 report on young artists, “James Rosenquist is one of the first-known of so-called pop artists. His paintings are organized in a way related to cubism, but the patterns and the lines are without cubism’s generalized and descriptive references of abstraction. Instead, the subject-matter is unmistakable, part of a car, a woman’s face or comb."

The installation will feature Time Dust–Black Hole, a thirty-five foot billboard-sized painting from 1992, along with the paintings Yellow Applause and Shadows from the 1960s, and two prints, Horse Blinders (east) and Horse Blinders (west) from 1972. Pertinent to Rosenquist’s previous experience as a commercial artist and billboard painter, Judd writes of the earlier work, “There is never any possibility of Rosenquist’s paintings being mistaken for billboards, however, as Lichtenstein’s paintings are mistaken for comics. The conspicuous fragmentation of the various subjects is immediately recognizable as art.”

Contextual to their respective practices, Judd and Rosenquist each had studio spaces in Lower Manhattan during the 1960s, with Judd on Spring Street and Rosenquist on Coenties Slip and Broome Street. They were also both a part of the Leo Castelli Gallery and had work in shows at Richard Bellamy’s Green Gallery. Rosenquist’s work demonstrates that for Judd, artwork did not have to fit within a particular, defined style or category; it just had to be “good.”

Sarah Celeste Bancroft, co-curator of the artist’s 2003 retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and currently Vice President of the James Rosenquist Studio, will be in conversation with Rainer Judd, Co-President of Judd Foundation, on Wednesday, June 8 at 7:00pm.

The Visitor Talks: CCS Bard & Judd Foundation at 101 Spring Street

Friday April 10, 5:00pm-6:30pm
(IM)MATERIAL: Industrial and Post-industrial Fabrication and the Aesthetic Sphere 
This event focuses on the implications of industrial and post-industrial fabrication within contemporary art. Building from the transformation of artistic labor through industrial production initiated by minimalism and conceptual art, the panel, including artists Dora Budor and Josh Kline, and artist and theorist Keith Tilford, will consider histories of fabrication up to the present day. Most recently, the outsourcing of aspects of production has become standard practice in contemporary art. The discussion will explore the status of artistic labor in relation to technological developments, and the emancipatory possibilities offered by these technologies – if effectively re-vectored toward the production of new, post-capitalist political horizons. 

Organized by Adriana Blidaru, Tim Gentles, Jody Graf, Rosario Guiraldes, and Dana Kopel, graduate students at The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College. 

Friday April 24, 5:00pm-6:30pm

Exhibition
 
Donald Judd
Kukje Gallery
54 Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea 110-200
October 30, 2014 - November 30, 2014

This is the first Donald Judd solo exhibition in Korea and surveys Judd's work from the 1970s through the 1990s. It includes examples of his iconic series known as Swiss boxes, progressions, and stacks, in addition to a work initially conceived in the 1960s that Judd returned to in the 1990s. The exhibition demonstrates the way formal themes and conceptual exploration ran in tandem in Judd's work, inspiring the artist to continually challenge and reinvestigate his oeuvre over the course of his more than forty-year career.

From the early 1960s until his death in 1994, Donald Judd developed a unique art practice that fundamentally changed twentieth-century art history. Although widely identified with minimalism, Donald Judd strongly objected to this term as being overly general and a misinterpretation of his philosophy. Instead, Judd coined the term "specific objects" to describe the importance of making simple objects that made a clear and powerful statement.

To accomplish his ideal Judd created work that explored basic geometrical forms and utilized unique but everyday materials. Throughout his life's work Judd used industrial materials such as plywood, steel, concrete, Plexiglas and aluminum, choosing them both for their structural characteristics and their rich surface qualities. In addition, the artist used professional fabricators whose expertise with their chosen medium allowed Judd to create extremely refined objects-a level of mastery of materials that has led many to emphasize their perfect or industrially made appearance. This tension between object and maker is precisely the clarity of purpose that inspired Judd and allowed him to develop an incredibly sophisticated practice where an object's volume, surface and interior and exterior space all acted in concert to create a "specific object" that was not beholden to symbolic interference.

The Visitor Talks: CCS Bard & Judd Foundation at 101 Spring Street

Friday October 24, 10:30-1:30
Artist's Writing as Site of the Artwork: addresses the function of writing by artists such as Donald Judd and his contemporaries: from Duchamp to Brian O'Doherty to Carl Andre, Hélio Oticicia, Robert Smithson, Eva Hesse, Robert Barry, Lucy Lippard, Mel Bochner and others. This event considers the function of text, artist's writing and artistic language as departure points to explore the necessity of writing for a wide range of contemporary artists' working today such as Martha Rosler, Hito Steyerl, Jonas Staal, Cai Gu-Qiang, Miguel A. Lopez, Marion von Osten and the many others who emphasize the act of writing as either a significant part, or as the main site of their artistic production.

Friday November 21, 10:30-1:30
Writing as the Site of Exhibition: considers the significance of the curator's writing as both a primary site and contingent form of curatorial practice. This event engages with the methodologies and modalities of writing as a form of exhibition-making. The event explores how the practices of writing and curating can be considered co-dependent forms of production.

Friday December 12, 10:30-1:30
Three-dimensionality, Materiality, and Spatio-temporality: explores issues pertaining to the intersecting ideas of time, space and form in contemporary sculpture, installation, material practices and their attendant discourses. This discussion will examine the space and the time of art's moment of public-ness - how art's effectiveness, its affect and its material experience can be conceived of as both historical construct and contemporary event.

Lecture
Marfa Dialogues
Donald Judd: Ranches and Land Conservation
Saturday, August 2
2:00-3:00PM

Pulitzer Arts Foundation
3716 Washington Blvd.
St. Louis, MO
Free and open to the public

As a part of Marfa Dialogues, Judd Foundation's Randy Sanchez discussed Donald Judd's ranch properties outside Marfa, TX and the artist's approach to rural architecture and land conservation. 

As Judd made Marfa his home in the mid 1970s, he became interested in preserving the land that surrounds the town. He purchased three ranches, some 50 miles from Marfa, close to the Mexican border in Presidio County. Judd continued to acquire land adjacent to the ranches in an attempt to prevent future development. At the time of his death, Judd owned nearly 40,000 acres of contiguous undeveloped land. 

Today, Judd Foundation manages the properties and holds conservation easements to the land. Sanchez will highlight the Foundation's work, and the changing climate in the region he has witnessed over the past 25 years.

Exhibition
Prints: Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Fred Sandback at David Zwirner

While predominantly known for their dimensional works, drawing and printmaking were valued techniques that each of these artists engaged with throughout their careers. The mechanical and collaborative components inherent to the process of printmaking had clear correlations to their shared Minimal aesthetic, and it proved to be an additional medium for these artists to express their understanding of space and material. Executed between 1961 and 1994, the selection of prints on view will offer additional insight into each artist's unique sculptural practices, attitudes, and concerns.

An Artists' World: SoHo in the 1970s

A panel discussion organized by Judd Foundation in partnership with The Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art.
 
"This area was done for when they started calling it SoHo [...] I'm against an 'artists' world.' I don't want to bump into everyone I know on the streets. I want to live in the real world."
 
–Donald Judd
 
An exploration of the role of artists, gallerists, preservationists and community members in shaping the history of SoHo. From cultural interventions such as happenings and the Artists Against the Expressway movement, to legislative initiatives such as the AIR (Artists in Residence) re-zoning and historic district designation, the panel will consider how activism and community engagement impacted this neighborhood.
 
Andrew S, Dolkart is the Director of the Historic Preservation Program and the James Marston Fitch Associate Professor of Historic Preservation at Columbia University. Julie M. Finch is a choreographer, dancer, community organizer and chef. Barbara Rose is a freelance scholar, author, curator and art critic. The conversation will be moderated by Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art.

Art and the Land: Donald Judd in New York and Texas
 
A panel discussion organized by Judd Foundation in partnership with The School of Constructed Environments, Parsons The New School for Design.
 
"In the summer there are twelve cottonwoods around the pool, which in the winter become an elevated thicket. There is also a courtyard with a small garden of plants that stay green all year. The winter is bleak. This place is primarily for the installation of art, necessarily for whatever architecture of my own that can be included in an existing situation, for work, and altogether for my idea of living."
 
–Donald Judd
 
Jamie Dearing and Peter Walker will be in conversation about Judd's consideration of space, light and the natural landscape in art and architecture. Jamie Dearing is an artist living and working in Manhattan and Blue Point, Long Island and a former studio assistant to Donald Judd. Peter Walker is the founder and president of PWP Landscape Architecture and the author of Minimalist Gardens.

A Room Somewhere: The Artist's Home as Record

A panel discussion organized by Judd Foundation in partnership with The Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art.

"A great deal of contemporary art is permanently damaged [...] There should be rooms somewhere or small museums where a portion of, say, Newman's work or Reinhardt's is visible and permanent. Otherwise it's not going to last. The fast and constant exhibitions enforce the idea of performance, show business, rather than the idea of making art, either movable or for a particular situation. It's serious to make something that will be visible for a long time [...]"

–Donald Judd

An exploration of the artists's studio or collector's home and the role of objects and spaces in telling the story of a creative vision. Helène Furján is Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Glorious Visions: John Soane's Spectacular Theater. Anne Higonnet is Professor of Art History at Columbia University and author of A Museum of One's Own: Private Collection, PUblic Gift. Furján and Higonnet will be joined by Rainer Judd, filmmaker, President of the Board of Judd Foundation, and daughter of Donald Judd. The panel will be moderated by Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art.

 DONALD JUDD

David Zwirner Gallery
525 West 19th Street, New York

David Zwirner will present an exhibition of works by Donald Judd drawn from the artist’s seminal 1989 exhibition held at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany. Brought together from international public and private collections, this will be the first time these particular works have been exhibited together in a group of this size since Judd’s 1989 installation.

The exhibition, which will span both of the gallery’s spaces at 525 and 533 West 19th Street, will reflect the artist’s intended clarity and rigor in its installation. These works comprise one of Judd’s few explorations of color on a large scale using anodized aluminum and thus provide a focused investigation of the key concerns within Judd’s practice.

This will be the gallery’s inaugural exhibition of the artist’s work since having announced its exclusive representation of Judd Foundation.

For further information, contact David Zwirner at 212.517.8677 or Judd Foundation at 212.219.2747

Judd at Spring Street: Inside and Out


A Panel Discussion organized by Judd Foundation in conjunction with the Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art.

Inside and Out is the first of a series of discussions to be held at MoMA while restoration is underway of Judd's house and studio, 101 Spring Street, where he lived and worked from 1968 to 1994. Interpretations of Judd's relationship to the cast iron 1870 structure, itself a  serially produced artifact, will be offered by Adam Yarinsky, Principle of ARO (Architecture Research Office) and lead architect for the restoration, and by Robert Bates of Walter B. Melvin Architects, who has been working on the preservation of the facades. Yarinsky will offer an analysis of the parallels with the work of Austrian architect Adolf Loos in considering the spatial, material, and programmatic qualities of Judd's architectural interventions at 101 Spring Street and in his installed spaces at Marfa, Texas. Yarinsky and Bates will be joined by art historian Rosalind Krauss and Flavin Judd, son of Donald Judd, in a panel discussion moderated by Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA.

Judd Foundation’s Donald Judd Architecture + Design Lecture Series is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
