In the winter of 2013, Joeb Moore & Partners studio undertook a trip to Marfa, Texas. The voyage was conceived as a  research trip to view and experience the home, studios, and site-specific “situations” of Donald Judd, and the unlikely art community that he inspired in the Far West Texas town. Although Judd’s work had a familiarity afforded by our interests in art history and visual culture, the pieces took on radical new dimensions when viewed in-situ, collapsed against the surreal desert landscape and the artifacts of a highly politicized border region. The trip became a pilgrimage, as the manifold nuances of Judd’s vision revealed themselves over the three-day period, providing a wealth of  inspiration and further questioning with which to return to the studio.
