Publications

One of the foremost artists of the second half of the twentieth century, whose work continues to impact contemporary practice, the writings of Donald Judd remain as significant today as in the first decades of his career. The publication program of Judd Foundation develops texts for scholars, students, and those interested in the life and work of Donald Judd.

Donald Judd Spaces

Donald Judd Spaces is the first visual survey of the spaces which comprise Judd Foundation in New York and Texas. This publication includes newly commissioned and previously unpublished archival photographs alongside five essays by the artist.

Donald Judd Interviews

Donald Judd Interviews presents sixty interviews with the artist over the course of four decades and is the first compilation of its kind. Judd’s contributions in interviews, panels, and extemporaneous conversations are marked by his forthright manner and rigorous thinking, whether in dialogue with art critics, art historians, or his contemporaries. This collection of interviews engages a diverse range of topics, from philosophy and politics to Judd’s insightful critiques of his own work and the work of others.

Donald Judd Writings

Donald Judd Writings presents a new collection of Judd’s writings spanning from 1958 to 1993. This publication includes Judd’s most well-known essays, such as “Specific Objects” and “Complaints I and II,” as well as little-known essays previously published in limited editions. Moreover, to provide readers with the context and breadth of his life’s work and thinking, this new collection includes three unpublished college essays and hundreds of never-before-seen notes, an important and unknown part of Judd’s writing practice.

Donald Judd: Complete Writings 1959-1975

Donald Judd: Complete Writings 1959-1975, first published in 1975 by The Press of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, has been the primary source for Judd’s early writing. Working as an art critic for magazines such as Arts, Arts Magazine, and later Art International, Judd regularly contributed reviews of contemporary art exhibitions between 1959 and 1965, but continued to write throughout his life on a broad range of subjects.
