Publisher's Synopsis

Donald Judd (1928-1994) is one of the most influential American artists of the post-war era. Beginning in the 1960s, he developed new ideas about art-in both his works and writings-that challenged many of modernism's core tenets by resisting the categories of painting and sculpture. Judd described this work as "specific objects." Critics labelled it minimalism. Perhaps because Judd's own critical writings provide a discursive framework for his work, some of the monographic essays on his work are not widely known. This volume collects critical and scholarly writings on Judd, examining his work as both artist and critic. Series Overview: October Files is a series of inexpensive paperback books edited by the editors of October journal. Each book addresses a body of work by an artist of the post-war period who has altered our understanding of art in significant ways and prompted a critical literature that is sophisticated and sustained. Each book in this series traces not only the development of an important oeuvre but also the construction of the critical discourse inspired by it.
