This event has ended.

The Paula Cooper Gallery presents an exhibition of Donald Judd woodcuts at 521 West 21st Street, from 2 May through 31 May, 2008. The exhibition includes over 30 woodcuts on paper in cadmium red, cerulean blue or black, most dating from the early 1960s, with one print from 1955.
From the mid-1950s to 1961, as he explored the medium of the woodcut, Judd progressively moved from figurative to increasingly abstract imagery, first carving organic rounded shapes, then, working with his father Roy in 1960-1961, moving on to the painstaking craftsmanship of straight lines and angles (which require mechanical tools and a less instinctive, more planned approach). As described by Judd’s son Flavin, “These were the decisive years. He had moved to a new way of thinking: he would divide and use space instead of imposing something upon it.”



from May 02, 2008 to May 31, 2008
