Rainer Judd’s Journal Pages at rag & bone’s Houston Wall Project Space

January 24, 2015


Often showcasing artworks by diverse street artists – from DALeast to Ludo to Meres  – the wall outside rag & bone has also featured various artists who don’t generally share their visions in public spaces. For the past several weeks we have been treated to a selection of pages from the journals of Rainer Judd, the daughter of the late artist Donald Judd,

“The idea was to see books on the wall, changing pages,” Rainer explains. “I’ve been filling journal books since I was 11. On November 16, 2014, I brought Swiss bags full of these books to photographer Henry Leutwyler and Javas Lehn. With a focus on the graphic quality of them as objects I could see them differently. For me, journals are a place of dialogue with myself, a testing ground for ideas, a pal, a repository for the stuff of the highway of my heart. This is a small window into a deep archive.”

Here are some pages from Rainer Judd‘s journal that surfaced in December



Then earlier this month


And through the end of this month, you can check out the final piece now outside rag & bone on Elizabeth Street off 73 East Houston.
