Talk:Donald Judd

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))

Basic revisions[edit]

A couple of items could use work. Marfa is mentioned twice before it's identified as a town in Texas that ended up being his sanctuary. The distinction between the Chinati Foundation and the Judd Foundation is neither clear nor correct. How is it possible to get through the article without using the words "mill aluminum" and describing in some detail the astonishing installation at former Fort D. A. Russell? Judd, and minimalism, was (and is) controversial, and the article would benefit from a stronger sense of the controversy. Likewise, the management of the Judd Foundation, and its 2006 sale of art, raised quite a few eyebrows and called into question the stewardship of his legacy by his children. Should that be more apparent? What's left of the Ayala de Chinati is the Casa Perez, which might deserve mention, as the Judd Foundation opens it to the public now and then.

And I've always wondered when someone will point out that his early, widely-worshiped furniture strongly resembled what 16-year-olds have been making in wood shop for a long, long time. The desks and chairs that he made for Rainer and Flavin (who sold his, I think) are not great moments in design.
