Judd Foundation is pleased to share that an exhibition of works by Donald Judd at Thaddaeus Ropac Salzburg is on view July 24 through August 28, 2021. Curated by Flavin Judd, Artistic Director of Judd Foundation, the exhibition presents a group of works from 1977–1991, a period in which the artist’s work was defined by the principles that had formed his artistic vision.

The exhibition includes work in plywood, painted wood, plexiglass and aluminum – media through which Judd interrogated the relationship between form and color – and features work that has never previously been exhibited, alongside seminal floor works which remain at the core of Judd’s practice. Highlights of the exhibition include three rectangular plywood floor works fabricated in Douglas fir plywood from 1990 and 1991. The works reflect Judd’s return to forms first used early in his career with the earliest example of this type of incised cadmium red light floor work exhibited in Judd’s first solo exhibition at Green Gallery, New York. 

The exhibition at Thaddaeus Ropac Salzburg is the most recent in a history of exhibitions of Judd’s work in Austria, with solo museum shows in the cities of Vienna (Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, 1977; MAK, Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst in 1991 and 1994–95), Innsbruck (Galerie im Taxispalais, 1974), and Bregenz (Kunsthaus Bregenz, 2000–01).
