Donald Judd, born 1928 in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, died 1994 in New York. Judd is one of the most important minimalists. With his sculptures, his "specific objects" made out of steel, wood, aluminum and plexiglas, he has analyzed the definition of space and sculpture in a radical and revolutionary way. Judd´s objects are conceived with the principles of progression and seriality. They manifest a latent inclination towards architecture through their reference to the surrounding space, precise positioning, rectilinearity, and ordered structural logic. In the 70s and 80s he created a setting - in a compound on a former military base in Marfa, Texas - which afforded the opportunity for permanent installations of both his own work and that of other artists, in architectural as well as natural surroundings. Through Marfa, Judd was able to realize his ideal context for the exhibition of contemporary art and in doing so, set a new standard for its presentation.
