CHINATI MASTER PLAN COMMUNITY FORUM
TUE DEC 6 2016
The public is invited to a community forum about Chinati's master planning process on December 6, 2016, at 6pm in the USO Building in Marfa. Staff from Chinati and representatives from Sasaki will discuss the master plan initiative and then open the floor to questions. Boston-based architecture and planning firm Sasaki have been working since August on a master plan for Chinati that will provide a framework for decision making about the entire Chinati site, including the land, buildings, art, visitor access and conservation needs as well as preservation and future growth of the museum.
 
 
DONALD JUDD’S FREE-STANDING FLOOR PIECES
In the Ice Plant in downtown Marfa, Chinati is exhibiting, for the first time, two stainless steel, five-part floor works by Donald Judd. Both untitled (U Channel,1980, and V Channel, 1982), each work is composed of five open frame-like structures in brushed metal, each element approximately 5 feet high and 15 feet wide, sitting equally spaced and directly on the floor. These works are one of two groups of large-scale interior works by Donald Judd whose exhibition coincided with Chinati Weekend, October 7-9, 2016. This exhibition is on view until August 2017.
 
 
DONALD JUDD’S HORIZONTAL WALL WORKS
A selection of Judd's horizontal wall works are on view in Chinati's special exhibition gallery until August 2017. These pieces are commonly referred to as “progressions” because of the mathematics that inform the sequence of box-shaped elements and their intervals that support the full length of a 21-foot long horizontal tube. These works are one of two groups of large-scale interior works by Donald Judd whose exhibition coincided with Chinati Weekend, October 7-9, 2016.
