One of the foremost sculptors of our time, Donald Judd refused this designation and other attempts to label his art: his revolutionary approach to form, materials, working methods, and display went beyond the set of existing terms in mid-century New York. His work, in turn, changed the language of modern sculpture. Bringing together sculpture, painting, drawing, and rarely seen works from throughout Judd’s career, Judd is the first US retrospective in over 30 years to explore this artist’s remarkable vision.

For the exhibition identity, we designed a title wall that emphasized the space’s architecture and showcased a photograph of a young Donald Judd installing his work at Leo Costelli Gallery in 1966. Adjacent to the entrance is also a reading room with Judd furniture, books, and additional texts about site-specific projects. In the exhibition space, all the texts are applied directly to the wall for a more seamless experience.

Designed at The Museum of Modern Art, and organized by Ann Temkin with Tamar Margalit and Erica Cooke.
