    About The Work

    Chinati is pleased to announce the publication of a new book featuring the first comprehensive overview of the museum's history and collection. Edited and principally written by Marianne Stockebrand, Chinati: The Vision of Donald Judd describes how Donald Judd developed his ideas of the role of art and museums from the early 1960s onward, culminating in the creation of Chinati (and including its two predecessors—his building in New York and his residence in Marfa). The sumptuously illustrated book (with 149 color and 71 black-and-white illustrations), co-published by Chinati and Yale University Press, begins with an introductory essay surveying the history of Judd's work in Marfa, then presents the individual installations at the museum in chronological order, with stunning photography.

    In addition to the essays by Marianne Stockebrand, the volume contains texts by Rudi Fuchs, former director of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam; Thomas Kellein, former director of the Kunsthalle Bielefeld in Germany; Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate in London; Richard Shiff, professor and Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art at the University of Texas; and Rob Weiner, associate director of the Chinati Foundation. Also featured are writings by Donald Judd relating to Chinati and his other buildings in Marfa. A detailed catalogue of the collection and artists' bibliographies are included as well.

    Donald Judd published a modest Chinati catalogue in 1987, long since out of print. Chinati: The Vision of Donald Judd surveys and documents everything that Judd accomplished in Marfa, and all that has been accomplished in the years since his death. The book's publication represents a milestone in Chinati's history.
