Donald Judd, 100 untitled works in mill aluminum, 1982-1986
Easily Judd’s best work. Each of the 100 aluminum sculptures are slightly different, underlining Judd’s surprising wit. Unlike Flavin (see below), I found myself inspecting and enjoying every single one, my enthusiasm only strengthening. A bonus for fellow sculptors: the docent explained how they are assembled: there are hidden aluminum dowel rods (he even showed me a “less perfect” work with a small crack, just big enough to see them).
Megan and I are fans of Judd’s writing–this work is the best example of his ideas that I’ve seen.
