Roberta Smith on Donald Judd’s
ARTnews Writings:

If Minimalist artist Donald Judd is known as a writer at all, it’s likely for one important text— his 1965 essay “Specific Objects,” in which he observed the rise of a new kind of art that collapsed divisions between painting, sculpture, and other mediums.

Update of 12:45 AM Feb. 22 —

A check of later obituaries reveals that Hurt may well
