Episode No. 438 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curator Ann Temkin and editor Caitlin Murray.
The Museum of Modern Art, New York has organized “Judd,” the first posthumous retrospective of Donald Judd’s work in the United States. “Judd” was curated by our guest, Ann Temkin, with Yasmil Raymond, Tamar Margalit and Erica Cooke. The exhibition features over 70 sculptures, paintings, drawings and prints. It highlights Judd’s important sculpture practice, especially his eagerness to eliminate many of art’s usual pillars, such as narrative or metaphor. While MoMA is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition is scheduled to be at the museum through July 11. The show is accompanied by an outstanding catalogue. Amazon offers it for $75.
Donald Judd’s work was previously discussed on Episode No. 80 of The MAN Podcast when Marianne Stockebrand curated an exhibition of Judd’s multi-colored work for the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis.
On the second segment, Caitlin Murray discusses “Donald Judd Interviews,” a new, 1,024-page compilation of over sixty interviews Judd conducted during his career. Murray, the director of archives and programs at Judd Foundation, co-edited the volume with Flavin Judd, the foundation’s artistic director. “Interviews” is a companion to the 2016 book “Donald Judd Writings.” Both volumes were published by Judd Foundation and David Zwirner Books. Amazon offers “Donald Judd Interviews” for $26.
