Background and Education[edit]

There could be more information in this section, especially in the last sentence regarding his studio. An interesting bit to add would be other artists he worked with in graduate school, and those who influenced him along the way. (Altb478 (talk) 18:47, 26 January 2015 (UTC))

The article reports that he studied for his MA. Did he complete this degree? Aolivex (talk) 21:14, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Exhibitions and Academic Work[edit]

Numerous exhibitions are missing. There should be an extensive list considering the amount of well-known work that Donald Judd has produced.

There is also little information on his teaching career. More in depth details about other famous artist's who he has mentored, and the work he produced while teaching could be added. In addition, his contribution to minimalist art through his writings could be expanded upon.

(Altb478 (talk) 18:52, 26 January 2015 (UTC))

This is a good point, especially since the introduction mentions (rightly) that he's as well known as a theorist of Minimalism as he is as an artist. Perhaps a separate section dedicted to "Specific Objects" and the subsequent riposte by Michael Fried? Aolivex (talk) 21:16, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

References[edit]

Most of the references seem reliable, however many of them are to exhibition pages which makes me wonder why the exhibition section is a little bit weak. (Altb478 (talk) 18:58, 26 January 2015 (UTC))
