Minimal art is to art what art is to things at large. Respected, but somehow standing out as a little too elitist, an easy way in the complexity of a larger universe. After the first round of sixties minimalism has been fully incorporated by institutions all over the world, even somebody who appreciates abstraction and is privy to art history might be caught frowning upon an industrially-manufactured monochromatic cube. Tackling minimal aesthetics today requires a little more sophistication... [more]

Post-War American Sculpture in Chelsea  
by
Donald Judd at David Zwirner- 519 W. 19th May 6th, 2011 - June 25th, 2011
Posted 6/19/11
Donald Judd at David Zwirner Gallery is just one of three major sculpture exhibits now on view in Chelsea. This exhibit seen along side John Chamberlain's show (at the Gagosian through July 8th) and the Jasper Johns exhibit (at Matthew Marks through July 1st) make a fine medley of post-war American sculpture. A 2004 press release written by The Pace Gallery for its show "Donald Judd: Large Scale-Works" (also of late 80's work by Judd) quotes Dutch Art Historian Rudi Fuchs, who advises to... [more]

Thumbing through my dog-eared dictionary (site of too many tongue-tied beginnings), abstraction is firstly a “duality of dealing with ideas rather than events” and secondly, probably in some ways more accurately for our purposes, “freedom from representational qualities in art.” Just like “modern” gets handily replaced by “contemporary” even if they sort of mean the same thing, “abstraction” gets knocked out by “conceptualism,” even if, through at least one definition, they also mean sort of...

        MoCA’s current exhibition of its permanent collection proves that the museum isn’t just a vital institution for the city in its relationship to this place and its artists, but also to the history of art. A bold statement to be sure, but when the Centre Pompidou did its landmark exhibition of art in Los Angeles, Birth of an Art Capital, it ended in 1980, just as MoCA was suffering birth pangs and the LA was truly coming into its own. Still a bold proposal, the artists and the... [more]

Maximal Limits   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Robert Dowling, Terry Haggerty, Daniel Robert Hunziker, Donald Judd, David Renggli, Stefan Sandner, Sebastian Wickeroth, Claudia Wieser at ANDREAS GRIMM - MÜNCHEN March 13th, 2009 - May 9th, 2009

The title of the exhibition is meant to juxtapose the term ‘Minimal Art' with its antonym ‘Maximal', not as a paradox or contradiction, but rather as a combination of thoughts on the nature of the works shown. It explains the relationship of the history and influences of Minimalism on contemporary art. From its beginning at the German Bauhaus to the American Minimal Art of the 60's, the term ‘Minimal' reflects a reduction within a formal repertoire, but can be misinterpreted as a... [more]

Open-ended Statements   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Joseph Beuys, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd at Walker Art Center May 15th, 2008 - July 12th, 2009
Posted 1/9/09
Having lived in Minnesota until I went to college, I have always known that the Walker Art Center was a good museum; it’s easily accessible from anywhere in the Twin Cities and throughout my life I have been on numerous field trips there.  However, it was only after beginning my professional art career that I came to appreciate the Walker as a great museum, with one of the best contemporary art collections in the country and with an especially good collection of conceptual and minimalist...

Good Boy: Nauman at the MCA   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Leon Golub, Donald Judd, Sharon Lockheart, Bruce Nauman, Cindy Sherman, Sarah Sze, Kara Walker at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) May 10th, 2008 - March 3rd, 2009
Posted 9/1/08
As Madeleine Grynsztejn takes over as Director for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA), their ongoing exhibition series "Artists in Depth," perhaps signals the new course that the museum is taking. After showing a "greatest hits" exhibit ("Highlights from the Permanent Collection") this series thoughtfully examines the work of several major artists that the museum has large collections of. This allows the variety of an artist's output to be displayed, so that one gets a sense of the... [more]
