Artworks: 1970–1994
November 5–December 12, 2020
David Zwirner, 519, 525, and 533 West 19th Street, New York

Judd Foundation is pleased to announce the exhibition Artworks: 1970–1994 at David Zwirner in New York. The survey exhibition features a selection of works within Donald Judd’s oeuvre drawn from both public and private collections installed across all three of the gallery’s West 19th Street locations, now on view through December 12, 2020.

The exhibition includes one of the largest and most intricate installations conceived of by Judd from 1986, comprised of thirty wall-mounted plywood boxes. Each box measures one meter by one meter and is backed with acrylic sheets in various colors. The exhibition also features a large-scale work from 1970 consisting of galvanized iron panels, each measuring five feet tall and placed end to end flat against a wall so as to create a contiguous band along the perimeter of the room. The work was originally created for the front room of the Leo Castelli Gallery on East 77th Street in New York. Both of these works were last presented in New York in Judd’s 1988 solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Other works present variations on some of Judd’s most recognizable forms, executed in materials such as Cor-ten steel, copper, plywood, brushed aluminum, and enameled aluminum. These include two nearly twelve-foot-long multicolor aluminum boxes stacked vertically, a copper wall-mounted box featuring a patterned progression of divisions, and a stack of six Cor-ten steel boxes backed with black acrylic sheets with undulating internal divisions, among others. Artworks: 1970–1994 is curated by Flavin Judd, Artistic Director of Judd Foundation. 

On the occasion of the exhibition, an extensive catalogue featuring new texts on the artist is forthcoming from David Zwirner Books. For further information visit the David Zwirner website.
