Conservation

Judd Foundation preserves and maintains Donald Judd’s permanently installed collection in Marfa, Texas and at 101 Spring Street in New York. Further, the Foundation  supports institutions and collectors in caring for Judd works through research and the sharing of information.

To help inform owners about the appropriate care and handling of Judd works in metal Judd Foundation has a set of guidelines, written by Elenora Nagy, Conservator of Three-Dimensional Works of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art. The guidelines include information about installation, preservation, storage, packing, handling, and documentation. Please register for the guidelines here.

In association with the Donald Judd Catalogue Raisonné project, Judd Foundation researches information about the conservation of Judd works and can assist owners with questions about the current condition of works. If you would like to contact Judd Foundation with conservation questions or information about a work, please complete and submit the conservation information form here.

Judd Foundation does not perform conservation treatments on privately held works; to conserve a work the Foundation suggests contacting an experienced conservator. For assistance in locating conservators with experience of treating Judd works please contact conservation@juddfoundation.org. Please note, Judd Foundation does not recommend or approve conservation treatments for artwork by Donald Judd.
