Thaddaeus Ropac to Represent Donald Judd
From November 2, 2018
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce the representation of Donald Judd and Judd Foundation in Europe. The close collaboration with the Foundation will be inaugurated by a solo exhibition of works by Donald Judd (1928-1994) in Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac’s Paris Marais gallery in April 2019, the first dedicated show of his works in France for almost 20 years. The exhibition will be curated by the artist's son Flavin Judd, Artistic Director of Judd Foundation.
“The architecture of Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac presents an occasion to exhibit Don’s work within an environment that suits his artwork wonderfully. Through working with the gallery we will develop a compelling programme of exhibitions and initiatives.” Flavin Judd, Artistic Director, Judd Foundation
“We very much look forward to working with Judd Foundation in representing Donald Judd, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Judd challenged and redefined the notion of sculpture, architecture and design. His ground-breaking explorations of the relationship between the object and its environs, his seminal writings on art and his collaborations with other artists remain as influential as ever. To deeply engage with Judd’s work and build upon a truly remarkable legacy alongside the Foundation is a great honour.” Thaddaeus Ropac
Major works by Donald Judd are currently featured in Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac’s Pantin exhibitionMonumental Minimal, on view until March 2019, which includes his early horizontal work dating from 1986 and two rare monumental vertical MENZIKEN works dating from 1988, each formed in aluminium and coloured Plexiglas.
