Press Release: 20 April 2011, Donald Judd’s 1989 Baden-Baden exhibition to be shown in New York
David Zwirner, the German-born gallerist based in New York will be presenting an exhibition of works by artist Donald Judd, drawn from the 1989 exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle, Baden-Baden. The exhibition opens on 6th 2011 at David Zwirner’s gallery space in New York.
Donald Judd is one of the most significant American artists of the post-war period. Judd’s work defines Minimalist Art. His strong interest in colour, form, material and space defines his work. Judd began his career as a painter in the 1940s and by the early sixties he had begun to create freestanding works that were presented directly on the floor and the wall, using materials such as plywood, steel and concrete.
The exhibition of twelve identical aluminium works, first shown in Baden-Baden, is significant for being the first time Judd used coloured, anodized aluminium in such a large format. The artworks present an experience of composition and space. For Judd, the placement of a colour or panel was always part of a larger context.
The Donald Judd exhibition runs from May 6 - June 25 2011 at David Zwirner, 525 West 19th Street, New York, NY 10011 www.davidzwirner.com
