Donald Judd Quiz


I’m guessing the point of this quiz is to make fun of contemporary art. That’s fine, because in many ways if you make a quiz like this then you’re missing the point entirely. Not to mention the fact that a lot of contemporary art is precisely about figuring out this kind of distinction (think Andy Warchol readymades).

In any case, whew, I’m glad I don’t have to eat my words. I was able to get 100% on this. In my mind, this proves that maybe to the untrained eye Donald Judd and cheap furniture are indistinguishable, but in reality they are worlds apart! The whole reason I love Donald Judd is his perfect minimalism, and that is very hard to imitate.

Try to make the distinction yourself here.
