Donald Judd was an American artist and critic famous for being one of the core figures in what came to be known as Minimalism. Writing in 1965, Judd used the term “specific objects” to describe the shared thematic that he saw in art of the moment, a designation that would apply to his production as well: three-dimensional works that incorporated elements of painting and sculpture but are neither. Throughout his career, Judd maintained a focus on plays of color, form, material, and space, industrially fabricating his objects and eschewing a conception of art that expresses the maker’s interiority. Judd’s work was included in The Kitchen’s 2016 exhibition “From Minimalism into Algorithm.” For more information, please see:
