Donald Judd: Complete Writings 1959-1975, first published in 1975 by The Press of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, has been the primary source for Judd’s early writing. more
Working as an art critic for magazines such as Arts, Arts Magazine, and later Art International, Judd regularly contributed reviews of contemporary art exhibitions between 1959 and 1965, but continued to write throughout his life on a broad range of subjects. In his reviews and essays, Judd discussed in detail the work of more than 500 artists showing in New York in the early and mid-1960s, and provided a critical account of this significant era of art in America. While addressing the social and political ramifications of art production, the writings frequently addressed the work of artists such as Jackson Pollock, Kazimir Malevich, Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, Lee Bontecou, Yayoi Kusama, John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, Kenneth Noland, and Claes Oldenburg.
