Marathon Reading of Donald Judd Interviews

Saturday, October 19
101 Spring Street

New York, NY

Organized in collaboration with Independent Curators International and David Zwirner Books, the marathon reading celebrates the new publication of Donald Judd Interviews. ICI Collaborators read from historical interviews with Donald Judd, representing a diverse range of critical voices from the curatorial field who also have a connection to the publication or, by extension, Judd more specifically.

The reading of interviews, sourced from over four decades, is interspersed with archival video recordings of the original interviews, selected by co-editor of Donald Judd Interviews, Caitlin Murray, Director of Archives and Programs at Judd Foundation.

This talk is part of the public programs in New York and Marfa, Texas presented by Judd Foundation and David Zwirner Books to coincide with the release of Donald Judd Interviews. All events are free and open to the public.
