Donald Judd's loft opens to the public
Refurb finished on Soho loft where Judd exhibited the work of Carl Andre, Claes Oldenburg, and Dan Flavin
It's restoration time in the artworld. Yesterday we bought you news about Jackson Pollock's Mural, and today it was announced that 101 Spring Street, the cast-iron building built in 1870 that leading minimalist Donald Judd used as a residence and studio from 1968, will reopen to the public next June.
The Judd Foundation has been overseeing the systematic restoration of the building and its cast-iron façade. Judd, who died in 1994, installed work by a wide variety of artists in the space during his time there. According to the restorers, each floor will remain as originally installed by the artist with pieces from his 500-strong collection including his own sculpture, paintings, drawings, prints, and furniture as well as works by Carl Andre, Marcel Duchamp, Dan Flavin, Claes Oldenburg, Ad Reinhardt, and Frank Stella. You can learn more about Judd in our wonderful book Minimalism and don't forget to check out the work of Carl Andre.
