Widely recognized as one of the 20th century’s preeminent modern artists, Donald Judd’s interrogation of space and geometric form represents a critical moment in American art history. While he was renowned for his sculptures, which eschewed traditional materials in favor of an industrialized palette of iron, plywood and Plexiglas, a lesser-known portion of Judd’s oeuvre is his early practice as a painter.
From April 5 to July 15, ICA Miami hosts ‘Donald Judd: Paintings’, an exhibition that brings together fourteen of the artist’s rarely seen pieces to offer a new perspective on his praxis and later works. Spanning the years 1959 to 1961, the paintings represent a critical moment in Judd’s early career, and permit a glimpse of his experimentation with color, space and form. The works are complemented by one of Judd’s large-scale curvilinear sculptures, untitled (1964).
It is with pleasure that we partner with ICA Miami, which re-opened its doors only in December 2017, to present this compelling display of Judd’s work. After a leisurely viewing of the exhibition—and the Institute’s other offerings—we invite you to stop by our Design District signature store, a mere five-minute stroll up NE 41st Street, for a restorative cup of tea.
