Save the Date “Donald Judd: Delegated Fabrication” Conference and Exhibition, Portland, Ore. Sunday, April 25, 2010 University of Oregon in Portland White Stag Block
From the outside a Donald Judd piece is seamless, hiding all traces of it’s construction. But behind the final piece is a rich history of the artist’s intent and his method for fabrication. Join us for a groundbreaking discussion of Judd’s art, lead by contemporary art scholars and Judd’s longtime fabricator. The day-long conference in Portland, Ore, will look at Judd as an icon of the American minimalist movement, as well as issues of authenticity and fabrication that continue to have lasting implications for artists today. In addition, the conference will explore the artist’s connection to Pacific Northwest, where he created a site-specific piece in 1974 for the Portland Center for Visual Arts (PCVA).
A related exhibition will be presented in the University of Oregon’s White Box visual laboratory.
Conference Speakers: Robert Storr -- Dean of the Yale School of Art and past curator at the Museum of Modern Art, art critic and painter Peter Ballentine —Judd’s longtime fabricator, curator and artist Bruce Guenther — Curator of modern and contemporary art at the Portland Art Museum
