Donaldo Judd / USA

I can not talk about the minimalist that is popular today without this person.

Hello I am Japanese Sculptor hideki iinuma.

Today, I found catalog of Donald Judd’s Saitama Museum of Art on the bookshelf in my bedroom. I can’t talk about the minimalist that is popular today without this person, so I will tell you its charm.

Born in the United States in 1928-died in 1994.

After studying philosophy and art history at Columbia University, he wrote various art magazines as a critic until 59-65. He defended works by Newman , Rothko and Yayoi Kusama.

Yayoi Kusama is a lifelong friend,

She has lived in an apartment at the same address as Judd.

They stayed in Japan for an exhibition at Gallery Watari in February 1978.

Origin of the minimalist

1962 After publishing a work with three-dimensional reliefs arranged on the floor and focusing on the importance of the surrounding space.

His work emphasizes the beauty of the materials in the 70s and the proportions in the space.

This became a very important movement in art history called “minimalism.”

It is the starting point of a minimalist that reduces the things around him as much as possible.

If you want to be a true minimalist, visit Maafa, a city near the US border with Mexico.

It is on YouTube.

A place where chemical weapons were tested during the war. A city without anything,

An artist who catches in 400,000 tourists a year. – Donald Judd – 

In 1986, he made a significant contribution to society, including establishing the The Chinati Foundation to support artists and being involved in environmental protection movements.

It’s so cool.

There are also followers of Judd in Japan. Especially architects and designers.

The chair he made is too great.

I want to go to the tour of the Japanese tour company Judd.

And last year, in 2019, a new book has been published after 25 years. Great influence. ! !

Author: Toru Arakawa. Title: Donald Judd: Landscape and Minimalism. Publication date: August 2019

The book concludes with a talk about a straight chair designed by Judd. They have the strange comfort of sitting on the body and sitting on the side of the body as a chair.

I want to sit down,too.

Conclusion Donald Judd’s words

Finally, I will introduce Judd’s words and conclude this art lecture.

“Reality is a three-dimensional space. It removes the problems of illusionism and real space, the space around and inside handwriting and colors.”

The tendency of three-dimensional works that are neither painting nor sculptures has spread to designers and architects with fans.
