“Judd is a philosophy student and he’s also in a post-war situation in the ‘50’s in America. He would be against metaphor, because he would understand instantly, I think, that metaphor could not in any way be a vehicle of meaning after the Holocaust and the dropping of the atomic bombs. …He had to find a way to make art that could exist on it’s own terms without the support of metaphor.” —John Yau

Donald Judd was born on June 3, 1928 in Excelsior Springs, MO, and died February 4, 1994 in Manhattan. Here is clip from Ovation of art critic John Yau and Donald Judd discussing the artist’s work.
