    To celebrate the final day of the exhibition Monumental Minimal, and the continuing run of Donald Judd curated by Flavin Judd in our Marais gallerywe are pleased to invite you to a screening of the celebrated documentary 'The Artist's Studio: Donald Judd', this Saturday, April 27 at 4pm in our gallery in Pantin. Alongside major works by Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold and Robert Morris, the exhibition Monumental Minimal presents several monumental works by the American artist. 

    The Artist’s Studio: Donald Judd (2010, 30 minutes) was produced and directed by independent filmmaker Michael Blackwood. The critically acclaimed documentary begins in the summer of 1972, when the art historian Barbara Rose interviewed Judd at 101 Spring Street, his home and studio in New York’s SoHo neighbourhood. The film also includes interviews and footage of the artist and his family from September 1975 in Marfa, a remote, small town in western Texas where Judd set up a home and studio and, later, other spaces to permanently install artworks.

  • Event and Book Launch
    March 2, 2019 - March 2, 2019
    Paris Pantin

    Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to invite you to a round-table discussion on American Minimal Art on the occasion of the exhibition Monumental Minimal in our Paris Pantin gallery Saturday 2 March at 4:30pm. The exhibition brings together twenty works by the six pioneering Minimal artists Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, and Robert Morris. As indicated by its title, the exhibition seeks to explore the ambivalent relationship of these works to the notion of the monument and to classical sculpture in general.

    Join us for a series of talks and a conversation between leading art historians and critics Éric de Chassey, Béatrice Gross and Guitemie Maldonado. Each speaker will draw upon their own expertise within the context of this exhibition. Éric de Chassey will reinvestigate the transatlantic artistic exchanges between modern European art and American Minimalism, Béatrice Gross will examine the transition from Minimal to Conceptual art in the practice of Sol LeWitt, and in tribute to the late Robert Morris, Guitemie Maldonado will question the use of new material forms in the transition to Post-Minimal art.

    We also invite you to discover on this occasion the new exhibition catalogue. The bilingual publication features new scholarship by acclaimed curator and expert Philippe Vergne, who organised seminal exhibitions of Minimal art during his tenure at the Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis and Dia Art Foundation, New York.

    The event will take place in French.
