Donald Judd Writings: Public Programs
Donald Judd Writings, co-published by Judd Foundation and David Zwirner Books, is the most comprehensive collection of the artist’s writings assembled to date. Available in November 2016, this timely publication includes Judd’s best-known essays, as well as little-known texts previously published in limited editions. Moreover, this new collection includes unpublished college essays and hundreds of never-before-seen notes, a critical but unknown part of Judd’s writing practice.
This fall, Judd Foundation and David Zwirner Books will present public programming in New York and Marfa, Texas to coincide with the release of this new publication. All events are free and open to the public.
