“I had always considered my work another activity of some kind,” remarked artist Donald Judd. “I certainly didn’t think I was making sculpture.” One of the foremost sculptors of our time, Judd (1928–1994) refused this designation and other attempts to label his art. His revolutionary approach to form, materials, working methods, and display broke from the prevailing modes of art making at the time. His work, in turn, changed the language of modern sculpture. From his early career as a painter while studying art history and writing art criticism, to his lifelong practice of using industrial materials and production processes, to explorations of color and surface through his “boxes” and “stacks”—the exhibition charts the full evolution of Judd’s remarkable vision.
