Support

We just published a little blue brick of a book. It contains four decades of interviews with Don and if you read just some of them you can hear his message clearly: art is the priority and it is not in the service of anything or anybody else. It must have freedom to exist. Freedom is required to keep the doors of culture open to everybody.

In his spaces in New York and Texas, Don made art the priority. He built his life the way he wanted, to his standards. For Don, this was what one was supposed to do and he was a bit disappointed that others were seemingly not as committed to their immediate surroundings. But buildings are expensive to maintain. We know this intimately as we work to restore our buildings in Marfa, beginning with Don’s Architecture Office.

While the Architecture Office is deinstalled for restoration, we will present an exhibition in New York including John Chamberlain and Alvar Aalto works selected by Don for the building. This is our second exhibition on the ground floor of Spring Street this year, following the presentation of Lauretta Vinciarelli’s drawings and watercolors from our collection this past spring.

We continue to make Don’s work and ideas accessible beyond New York and Marfa. In addition to the new Donald Judd Interviews publication, this year we launched the “Index of Works,” an online research tool documenting over 150 artworks in Don’s living and working spaces. And, as always, we continue to welcome increasing numbers of visitors to our spaces and public programs.

Above all, we remain dedicated to Don’s ideas and commitments. As he knew, the existence of art is not a guarantee and freedom can be fleeting. Like the fight against entropy in our buildings in Marfa, it takes constant effort and energy to ensure what Don built endures.

This is where we could use your help.

We invite you to visit Marfa where you can see what Don built. We invite you to read the interviews. Most importantly, we invite you to support Don’s mission—all in service of what happens when art and culture are prioritized.
