Judd Foundation hosts conversation with renowned curator Ann Temkin this Saturday

MARFA — This Saturday, October 10, Judd Foundation will present a conversation with Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis chief curator of painting and sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Temkin will be joined by Caitlin Murray, director of archives and programs at Judd Foundation, for a discussion of Judd, on view at MoMA through January 9, 2021. This conversation will include discussion of the role of the Donald Judd Papers and his installed spaces in New York and Marfa, Texas, in the development of Judd, the first major U.S. retrospective dedicated to the artist’s work in over three decades.

Judd Foundation has hosted the Visiting Scholars program since 2018, but this time, the event will take place virtually at juddfoundation.org/moma for all who wish to join in and learn from preeminent Judd scholars.

The event is in conjunction with Chinati Weekend and begins at 2 p.m. CDT, live streaming through Vimeo, with no login required.
