In Conversation: Brenda Danilowitz and Caitlin Murray
Thursday, April 29
Caitlin Murray, Director of Archives and Programs, and Brenda Danilowitz discuss aspects of Donald Judd’s writing practice as it developed in the 1990s, with a focus on a close reading of Judd’s 1991 essay “Josef Albers.”
Brenda Danilowitz is an art historian and chief curator at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. She is the author and editor of numerous books and essays on the work of Josef and Anni Albers and has organized exhibitions of their work in the United States, Europe, Mexico, Peru, and Brazil. In 2015, in conjunction with the exhibition Donald Judd: Prints (October 2–December 19, 2015) Danilowitz gave a talk at 101 Spring Street on Judd’s printmaking practice.
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.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and City Council Member Margaret Chin.
