ALBRIGHT-KNOX COLLECTION


Donald Judd
Untitled, 1969
Galvanized iron and plexiglass

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is a world class institution and well worth the trip to Buffalo.  Since its founding in 1862 as the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, the gallery has been committed to collecting, exhibiting and interpreting current artists.  A friendly docent was eager to fill us in on AK lore: the story went that a freshly purchased Willem De Kooning painting had the whole building smelling of linseed oil. Her point being that work in the collection is purchased close to the moment of creation, rather than when the bandwagon has left the gate.  You see this wandering through the halls, old standards side along with work from this decade.  The architecture echos this blend, neoclassical pillars making perfect sense adjacent to mid century hallways.  If you can't make the trip, take a tour through Naomi's lens:
