Donald Judd

The exhibition at Gagosian Gallery Basel presents a selection of ten single-unit, wall-mounted works by Donald Judd, created between 1987 and 1991 in Switzerland. These characteristic works are made of anodized aluminum and plexiglass sheets in in a range of opacities and colors, from amber and chartreuse to black.

Donald Judd, known for his radical approach to art, shaped the visual style of the late twentieth century with his work and continues to have a significant influence on artists, architects and designers worldwide. His artworks are characterized by their independent, physical terms, which are free of metaphors and illusions. The works on display structure the inner and outer space in a unique way, with no work in a group ever being identical.

Judd spent significant time in Switzerland, where important exhibitions of his work were held and where he set up a house and studio on Lake Lucerne.
