Color stars at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts

You may never again have the opportunity to see the work of two artists, each extremely focused on their vision and working at their peak, in an exhibit in which each perfectly complements the other.

Donald Judd: The Multicolored Works–a gang-buster exhibit at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis–ends tomorrow, Jan. 4. You still have today and tomorrow to see this comprehensive, one-of-a-kind show that would have attracted crushing crowds in New York or London.

Judd, who was consumed in his last decade with the interplay of color, light and space, could not have hoped for a better setting for his work than the deceptively simple light-box of a building Tadao Ando designed to explore the relationship between light, space and line. Art and architecture are perfectly married. The Judd Foundation lent many of the twenty finished pieces and 30 collages and drawings for the exhibit.

There are two special opportunities remaining to see the show:

  • Friday, January 3, 2014  5:00pm—First Friday in Grand Center
  • Saturday, January 4, 2014  6:30am—Sunrise at the Pulitzer. Free and open to the public, but space is limited. Register with Programs Coordinator Philip Matthews at pmatthews@pulitzerarts.org or 314-446-2057.

More details at The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts.

Also, the Judd show was recently named as a critic’s pick on Artforum.com
