Mignoni Gallery will present Donald Judd: Progressions, Oct. 31 to Dec. 18, 2017, which will inaugurate the gallery’s location on 960 Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side of New York.

The exhibition brings together six of Judd’s three-dimensional horizontal wall-mounted works often referred to as “progressions.”  These works utilize a manufactured tube to unify and connect alternating solid forms and empty spaces, with the specific placement being based on mathematical sequencing to form a linear progression. Included are several variations of the form: a square metal tube under which a progression of rectangular boxes and empty space is articulated; a square base with rounded forms that project from the front; and a squared base with box-like forms that project from the front. The works in the exhibition date from 1969 to 1988, virtually spanning the length of the artist’s career, and vary in size from 25 to 110 inches in a range of industrial materials utilized by Judd, including lacquer on galvanized steel, colored anodized aluminum, brass, and copper.
Donald Judd (1928-1994) is one of the most significant American artists of the post-war period. Judd’s work has been exhibited internationally since the 1960s and is included in numerous museum collections. Major exhibitions of his work include the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1968, 1988); the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa (1975); Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands (1987); the Menil Collection, Houston (2002-2003) and Tate Modern, London (2004). A major retrospective of Judd’s work is forthcoming at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
