In Conversation: Annie Ochmanek and Caitlin Murray
Wednesday, October 21
Caitlin Murray, Director of Archives and Programs, and Annie Ochmanek discuss aspects of Donald Judd’s writing practice as it developed in the 1970s, with a focus on a close reading of “Complaints: Part II” (1973) and “Judd Foundation” (1977).
Annie Ochmanek is a PhD candidate in Art History at Columbia University. She is a former associate editor at Artforum, was a contributor to the exhibition catalog for the major survey of Judd’s work at The Museum of Modern Art (2020), and was part of the curatorial team for the exhibition. Additionally, she is an editor with Alex Kitnick of a forthcoming edited volume of essays on Donald Judd (MIT Press, 2021).
This talk is part of an ongoing series of conversations that examine Donald Judd’s writings. To support greater access to his writings, Judd Foundation has released a selection of his essays by decade. Conversations with writers, artists, and art historians will explore the context of his committed writing practice, while focusing on close readings of specific essays.
