About the Author
With the intention of creating straightforward work that could assume a direct material and physical "presence" without recourse to grand philosophical statements, Donald Judd (1928-1994) eschewed the classical ideals of representational sculpture to create a rigorous visual vocabulary that sought clear and definite objects as its primary mode of articulation. Judd's oeuvre has come to define what has been referred to as Minimal art--a label to which the artist strongly objected on the grounds of its generality. Flavin Judd is artistic director of Judd Foundation and the son of Donald Judd. He oversees art installations, curatorial matters, and architectural projects for the Foundation including the design of the 101 Spring Street restoration in 2013. His art exhibitions, films, publications, and buildings have all been recognized with awards. He is coeditor of the recent publication Donald Judd Writings (2016). He lives with his family in France. Caitlin Murray is director of Marfa programs and archivist at Judd Foundation. She is co-editor of Donald Judd Writings and The Present Order: Writings on the Work of Ian Hamilton Finlay (2011). Murray is co-owner of the Marfa Book Company, a bookstore; publisher; film, music, and performance space in Marfa, Texas. She is an advisory member of Yale Union.
