The final seminar in our three part series: Educator and Director of Access and Community Programs, Laura Luis Worden, a graduate of Yale University with a Masters in Art History and Religion will give an illustrated lecture on the Donald Judd Exhibit, at the MoMA from March 1 – July 11, 2020.
“I had always considered my work another activity of some kind,” remarked artist Donald Judd (1928–1994). “I certainly didn’t think I was making sculpture.”
One of the foremost sculptors of our time, Judd refused this designation and other attempts to label his art: his revolutionary approach to form, materials, working methods, and display went beyond the set of existing terms in mid-century New York.
His work, in turn, changed the language of modern sculpture. Bringing together sculpture, painting, drawing, and rarely seen works from throughout Judd’s career, Judd is the first US retrospective in over 30 years to explore this artist’s remarkable vision.
