The five floors were open. I thought they should remain open. Despite being ruined inside, the building set conditions which could not be violated. Most of the building simply contains art. The little I’ve added to the building in reworking the interior is nevertheless to me very important, constituting serious ideas, architectural, but also the result and cause of some works of art.” –Donald Judd, ‘Art and Architecture,’ 1987 ⠀ ⠀ #juddfoundation #101springstreet
Earlier this year Judd Foundation announced the launch of the Index of Works, a new online database of the more than 140 works of art in the installed spaces in New York and Texas.

Through the 1960s and beyond, the mouse would become a significant figure for Oldenburg. In 1969, the artist contributed a drawing of a mouse to be etched on a tiny ceramic wafer and deposited on the moon; [The Moon Museum], measuring half an inch by three-quarters of an inch, also includes drawings by Robert Rauschenberg, David Novros, John Chamberlain, Forrest Myers, and Andy Warhol. ⠀ ⠀ Donald Judd also installed two other works by Oldenburg at 101 Spring Street: [Red Sausages], 1961 and [Soft Ceiling Lights at La

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Barbara Hunt McLanahan. Barbara was the Executive Director of Judd Foundation from 2006 to 2013, a central period of development and growth for the organization. She was instrumental and invaluable in building our team, providing guidance to our staff. All of us at Judd Foundation honor her legacy in the arts. Thank you for everything, we will miss you.
Judd Foundation is grateful for your visits, your contributions, and your enthusiasm for Don’s work and legacy. This past year has brought a renewed focus on our work in preservation. With your support, we initiated the restoration of Judd Foundation’s Marfa spaces and launched the Index of Works, a new online resource for the works of art in Don’s living and working spaces. ⠀ ⠀ Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate the publication of ‘Donald Judd Interviews’ this fall, as well as the upcoming retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in the spring of 2020. These activities are all part of the new programs, membership, and expanded access we are excited to share with you in the year ahead. ⠀ ⠀ Please consider making a gift today to help us continue to preserve and share the vital work in the spaces as Don intended. As always, thank you for all you do to support the work of Judd Foundation.⠀ ⠀⠀ #juddfoundation #donaldjudd #donaldjuddinterviews
#juddrecommends ‘Donald Judd’ on view at Annemarie Verna Gallery in Zürich, through July 6. The first exhibition with Donald Judd at the gallery was held from December 18, 1973 to February 21, 1974. This was followed by a connection between Judd and the gallery established by Gianfranco and Annemarie Verna that endured for twenty years. “New possibilities and methods of production characterize Donald Judd’s relationship to Switzerland. Above all, it was a work situation that led to an exceedingly relevant late body of works” recalls owner and founder Gianfranco Verna. “In Donald Judd’s entire oeuvre, there is a close, artistically significant connection between the work of art, its production and its correct installation. The responsibilities and the work processes are distinctly separate, yet all aspects need to be considered and analyzed as a single whole.”⠀ ⠀ #donaldjudd⠀ ⠀ Image: Donald Judd, untitled, 1989, douglas fir plywood, 50 x 100 x 50 cm

Edited by Flavin Judd and Caitlin Murray, this title will be available in November 2019. Programs in New York and Marfa to accompany the publication will be announced in early fall.⠀ ⠀ To learn more about ‘Donald Judd Interviews,’ and how to pre-order the companion volume to the critically acclaimed ‘Donald Judd Writings’ visit the writings portion of our website.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #donaldjudd #juddfoundation #donaldjuddinterviews
“I have learned a great deal by having other artists’ work always present. It’s the only way to understand their work. Galleries and museums provide information but not a situation for comprehension. I’ve always needed my own work in my own space to understand it and to think of further pieces." –Donald Judd, ‘Judd Foundation,' 1977⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ The works installed in the Judd Foundation spaces in New York and Texas include works by Judd and twenty-five other artists. Information on these works is now available in the new Index of Works, an online database searchable by artist, work type, date, and installed location.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #donaldjudd #juddfoundation #101springstreet ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Images: 101 Spring Street, New York.
