Conserving Donald Judd: Modern Art as Historical Artifact
September 21, 2016
Organized by the Dedalus Foundation Fellow in the Conservation of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, Christine Haynes, this panel addresses the challenges inherent in conserving the physical integrity of Donald Judd’s art while maintaining his philosophical values. Determining those values involves evaluating Judd’s own statements and writings, as well as considering the aesthetic and art historical significance of the objects he created. Speakers will explore how our understanding of the Modernist ideal of the new presents special kinds of challenges to conservators and curators as artworks age.
