About this Item

Donald Judd's uncompromising art reviews avoid the familiar generalizations so often associated with the styles emerging during the 1950s and 1960s. This book is not a mere survey of the art produced and exhibited during that period. Instead, Judd discusses in detail the work of more than five hundred artists showing in New York at that time and provides a critical account of this significant era in American art. While addressing the social and political ramifications of art production, the writings focus on the work of Jackson Pollock, Kasimir Malevich, Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, John Chamberlain, Larry Poons, Kenneth Noland, and Claes Oldenburg. The essay 'Specific Objects' (1965), which by now has to be considered as one of the essential discussions of sculptural thought in the 1960s, is included, as well as Judd's notorious polemical essay, 'Imperialism, Nationalism, Regionalism' (1975), published here for the first time. Three hundred reproductions as well as an extensive index accompany the text. Front cover has smuge mark on it. Slight scratching/scuffing on cover. Out of print. Open copy. Interior pages in very nice condition. Book has minor shelf wear. Bookseller Inventory # 206161

About this title

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1975, this collection of Donald Judd's writings is now a sought-after classic. His uncompromising reviews avoid the familiar generalizations so often associated with artistic styles emerging during the 1950s and 60s. Here, Judd discusses in detail the work of more than 500 artists showing in New York at that time, and provides a critical account of this significant era in American art. While addressing the social and political ramifications of art production, the writings focus on the work of Jackson Pollock, Kazimir Malevich, Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, John Chamberlain, Larry Poons, Kenneth Noland and Claes Oldenburg. His 1965 “Specific Objects” essay, a discussion of sculptural thought in the 60s, is included alongside the notorious polemical essay “Imperialism, Nationalism, Regionalism” and much else.

Review:

Perhaps more than any other artist of his generation, Judd shaped the cultural discourse of his time- not only through his radical sculptures, but with his prolific writing on his peers. (Zoë Lescaze Artnews)
