You have to admire Ali’s work ethic. Yesterday was a public holiday, but because his boss has gone to Turkey for a week, Ali went into the shop so as not to fall behind on the work that needed to be done.
Another addition to the monochromatic outfit collection here also.
Here are all five of Donald Judd’s multicolored floor pieces. (A sixth floor piece, in ‘blank’ galvanized iron, is at the Tate.) One of them, the version in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, is included in “Donald Judd: The Multicolored Works” at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts through January 4. Exhibition curator Marianne Stockebrand is this week’s guest on The Modern Art Notes Podcast.
“The Multicolored Works” is the first museum exhibition to focus on Judd’s use of color, and more specifically Judd’s use of color in the 1980s, when he discovered a process that enabled a new kind of sculpture. It includes 23 Judd sculptures as well as works on paper and collages from the collection of the Judd Foundation that reveal Judd’s creative process. The gorgeous exhibition is a shoo-in to rank highly on critics’ year-end top-ten lists.
All of the multicolored floor pieces are untitled. From the top, where they are: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1989), Museum Bojimans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (1984), , Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Dusseldorf (1989-90), Museum of Modern Art, New York (1989), Herbert Collection, Ghent (1984).
Bullitt Center, Seattle
The Bullitt Center — the first urban building of its kind and commonly regarded as ‘the greenest office building in the world’— not only represents the level of sustainability possible in a city setting, it signifies a shift in the actual process of how buildings are designed and demonstrates the range of opportunities for inventiveness and creativity that are possible when integrated design teams target aggressive efficiency goals.
Very cool. After publishing an article when this was under construction, it’s awesome to see it come to life. And seemingly as innovative and sustainable as it promised to be. More please!

Patricia March is a Spanish artist based in Valencia, for whom the time is something like water that erodes and destroys the form while new ones are building. Like the rain, time is cyclic. In March’s drawings, there is a double reading, one from left to right and the other from right to left. The characters seem dominated by water movement, while resurfacing. That’s how artist perceives the time, and she uses the paper polyester, which allows her to perform these washes and erosion.
