Episode No. 461 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a holiday clips episode featuring curator Ann Temkin.
Less than two weeks after opening on March 1, the Museum of Modern Art, New York’s exhibition “Judd” was temporarily shuttered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both MoMA and “Judd” have re-opened. The museum has extended “Judd,” the first posthumous retrospective of Donald Judd’s work in the United States, through January 9, 2021. Entry to MoMA is available by timed ticket. As of this recording, tickets are sold out through September 10. MoMA has been making tickets available via the link above starting on Friday mornings.
“Judd” was curated by Temkin along 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. The show is accompanied by an outstanding catalogue. Amazon offers it for $75.
MoMA has posted 80 installation shots from the exhibition and an extensive audio playlist.
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.
