SUNSET AT CHINATI
SUN FEB 19 2017
The Chinati Foundation invites everyone to a special sunset viewing of Donald Judd’s 100 works in mill aluminum and 15 freestanding works in concrete as well as Robert Irwin’s untitled (dawn to dusk) from 5 to 6:30pm on Sunday, February 19, 2017. The works will be available for self-guided viewing.
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.
