Jerry Saltz and Justin Davidson on the Restoration of Donald Judd's Loft
Vulture
For him, space is a living substance, not an empty chamber that God and ideas inhabit.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Donald Clarence Judd (June 3, 1928 – February 12, 1994) was an American artist associated with minimalism (a term he nonetheless stridently disavowed). He is generally considered the leading international exponent of "minimalism,

 

His legacy is very compelling and the non-museum, museum a place I would like to experience.Visits to the Spring Street address can be arranged online after June 3,2013, http://www.juddfoundation.org.

Judd did very little besides clean and repair the building, which had originally been a kind of department store and then was divided into machine shops and other places for light industry.”

ParadigmGallery's insight:

In 1968 Mary and a group of other forward thinking people invested in a five-story former lightbulb warehouse in St. Louis and converted it to living and working space. It is an interesting read how this great space evolved,  a fascinating story of creativity and drive. As apartment therapy put it, she's also one of those women you want to be when you're in your 70s — whip smart, creative and kind. Read and share her story.....cool human!

 

This is a quote from one of the photographers Dabney Frake,  "What constitutes 'home' is so different to everyone, and we love how she literally built hers up over time -- it's a great reflection of who she is and a life well lived. Even if you aren't an artist, that's what a living space should be: structured to suit your life, personal, filled with things that mean something to you, yada yada yada. The second photographer is Ann Manubay.
