Mark Your Calendar: Donald Judd Mini Film Festival at David Zwirner

Time’s a wastin’ to catch the stellar Donald Judd exhibition at New York’s David Zwirner gallery, but procrastinators will be rewarded with a special film program on the show’s final day, this Saturday, June 25. First up is The Artist’s Studio: Donald Judd, Michael Blackwood‘s 2010 compilation of unused footage from two previous films (American Art in the 1960s and Masters of Modern Sculpture: Part III The New World). The 30-minute film, which will be shown four consecutive times beginning at 10:30 a.m., follows Judd from his SoHo home and studio to his early adventures in Marfa, Texas. The remote west Texas town is the focus of the day’s second film: Marfa Voices, a gorgeous documentary short by Rainer Judd, the artist’s daughter. Co-directed by Karen Bernstein, the film features excerpts from interviews conducted for the Judd Foundation‘s ongoing Oral History Project. Among the Marfa residents and Judd intimates who share their anecdotes are artist Boyd Elder, studio manager Dudley Del Balso, art dealer Paula Cooper, and lawyer Carl Ryan, who steals the show with his astute observations and brilliant comic timing. Rainer Judd will be on hand to introduce the film (screening at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.) and answer questions afterwards. Until then, enjoy the trailer:
