“Things that exist exist, and everything is on their side.” – Donald Judd
For him, it was about the purity of form – “the simple expression of complex thought,” he once said. Widely regarded as one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century, Judd saw the world differently, a radical thinker who can be credited for his role in shaping a new territory for American art and influencing a generation of artists and designers from Anish Kapoor to David Batchelor. As they say, seeing is believing, and thanks to a painstaking three-year renovation, Judd’s New York residence and studio located at 101 Spring Street is now open to the public for guided visits. Staying true to Judd’s vision, the five-story cast iron building is once again almost precisely as Judd left it.
