Obdurate Space: Architecture of Donald Judd

Obdurate Space: Architecture of Donald Judd is the first exhibition to solely focus on built and unrealized architectural projects by Judd, one of the most recognized artists of the 20th Century. The exhibition reveals how drawing and building cultures impacted his art and suggests how his work has influenced contemporary architecture.  

Obdurate Space details five selected built projects and proposals, both published and unpublished, for architecture designed between 1984 and 1994 within a threefold thematic framework, providing a window into Judd’s body of architectural work. The exhibition will include new representations of projects through both drawing and models, as well as photos of archival material, including drawings and models originally made by  the curators, Claude Armstrong and Donna Cohen, while assistants to Judd.
