One of the most important American artists of the post-war period, Donald Judd has come to define Minimalist art – a label he strongly objected to. His unaffected, straightforward approach and strong interest in colour, form, material and space, allowed him to create work with a direct material and physical ‘presence’ without recourse to grand philosophical statements. This book presents works from Judd’s seminal 1989 exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. Consisting of twelve identically scaled anodized aluminium works, this historic exhibition was the first time Judd presented coloured anodized aluminium in a large, floor-mounted format. Donald Judd includes new scholarship on Judd by art historian Richard Shiff, as well as archival material and interviews with the artist. Donald Judd was born in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, in 1928 and died in New York in 1994. His work has been exhibited internationally since the 1960s and is included in numerous museum collections. The recipient of many awards including a Guggenheim fellowship, Judd also wrote and lectured extensively on his art.
