A fully illustrated publication produced by Galerie Gmurzynska exhibition which connected the two giants of the 20th century who pushed the ethos of abstraction for their respective generations, and both conceived an entire world of creation ranging from painting to academic writing, to architecture, porcelain and furniture design, among various other fields.
The exhibition curator, Flavin Judd wrote “The superficial similarities in the squares of Judd and Malevich are distanced when one understands the reasons behind them. For Malevich the abstraction of art, the forgetting of the figure was a way to move towards a future of mankind. For Malevich the abstraction of form and color was towards the biggest thing imaginable: a paradise of the infinite, power, and spirit.”
